Prince George’s commuters: Paving work begins on county roads

Prince George’s commuters, here’s a schedule for paving projects from the Maryland State Highway Administration. The work along some very popular routes gets underway this week and is scheduled to be done by mid-summer.

These first two are stretches of roadway:

* Branch Avenue between Auth Way and Silver Hill Road in Hillcrest Heights.

* Kenilworth Avenue between Annapolis Road and Edmonston Road in Bladensburg.

These are bridge approaches and Interstate ramps:

Branch Avenue at Brandywine Avenue, Largo Road at Collington Branch, Indian Head Highway at Piscataway Creek, Central Avenue at Largo Road and at Harry S. Truman Drive, Lanham-Severn Road at 11th Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Highway at Interstate 95.

Drivers may encounter lane closings in all these areas. Watch out for the road crews. Often, they’ll be working very near traffic, with no more protection than the orange barrels and cones.

On Sunday’s Commuter page in The Post Metro section, I had a wider-ranging sampler of Maryland highway projects in the D.C. region.
