Main Street/Springfield Avenue (MD 851) Stormwater Improvements


1/23/2024 - The work on Springfield Avenue has started!  Please follow the instructions of flaggers, and do not attempt to drive around the road closed signs.  Please use detours.  Springfield Avenue is open to local traffic only.  The State Highway Administration is removing the existing stormwater drainage system and installing a new system.  Work has started with the removal of a large manhole and drainage popes in the center of the roadway.

Beginning on Monday, January 8, Springfield Avenue will be open to local traffic only. Springfield Avenue will be fully closed at the intersection with Main Street.  Local traffic will be able to access Springfield Avenue from the North side of the closure, at the intersection with Central Avenue.

This closure will allow crews to remove an underground stormwater culvert and drainage pipes located in the center of the roadway and install new structures.
