Southbound Route 1 lane closures over Conowingo Dam planned next two weekends


The southbound lane of Route 1 across Conowingo Dam in Harford and Cecil counties will be closed again this weekend for repaving, according to the Maryland State Highway Administration, which advises motorists to expect some delays.

Last Friday, SHA began conducting full weekend 24-hour single-lane closures on southbound Route 1 (Conowingo Road) over the Conowingo Dam Bridge.

The second closure will occur between Friday at 6 p.m. through Monday at 6 a.m.

The single-lane closures are necessary to allow crews to resurface the highway lanes on the bridge deck over the Susquehanna River. Weather permitting, work will be completed prior to the Memorial Day weekend, SHA said in a news release.

Similar work on the northbound lane of the Route 1 Conowingo Dam Bridge will be conducted in June and completed by June 30, SHA said.

The $1.2 million patching and resurfacing project was awarded to PDI Sheetz of Linthicum Heights.
