Construction crews will be a continuing presence for commuters on Route 113 between Snow Hill and Berlin, as paving work there is expected to continue into the fall.
Maryland State Highway Administration spokesman Bob Rager provided a status update on Phase 3 of the $86 million highway dualization project, which covers a 4.6-mile stretch of road between Massey Branch and Five Mile Branch Road.
Rager said State Highway was in the process of installing several layers of base asphalt for the new northbound U.S. 113 roadway that will run from south of Langmaid Road to south of Basket Switch Road.
Because crews began putting in initial base layers of asphalt in July, Rager said work has progressed steadily.
“It always takes a while to get to this point, but projects like this can really pick up speed once we hit the first paving operation,” he said.
