The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) has begun the resurfacing phase of a project on MD 193 (Greenbelt Road) from Rhode Island Avenue to Southway in Greenbelt, Prince George’s County. The work is part of a $4.5 million safety and resurfacing project, which began last spring and should be complete by late summer, weather permitting.
Work this spring involves removal and replacement of the top layer of asphalt, adding new asphalt and placing final pavement markings. Crews will mill and resurface westbound MD 193 first, then proceed to the eastbound side of the road. The resurfacing work will improve the road quality on MD 193.
Through April 1, crews have completed portions of guardrail installation, driveway construction and sidewalk and ramp work for Americans With Disability Act (ADA) compliance. This spring and summer, crews will finish work on these items and will also complete traffic signal enhancement and inlet and pipe cleaning activities. Last fall, crews completed construction of pedestrian bus pads at bus stops s and construction of concrete bus pads—the road surface located directly in front of a bus stop which is strong enough to support heavier vehicles without damaging the roadway.
SHA’s contractor may temporarily close one lane within the project limits weekdays, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and up to two lanes, overnight, Sunday through Thursday, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. All work is weather permitting. Residents and travelers are advised that construction equipment can be loud and disruptive.
