Road Work On Route 50 Could Cause Big Delays This Weekend

In Maryland, drivers headed to the beach on Route 50 this weekend could see some heavy delays.

Starting at 9 p.m. Friday, the ramp on westbound Route 50 to Route 301—which is exit 13 to Bowie—will close for the weekend and re-open no later than 5 a.m. on Monday.

For anyone going to the beach, that could mean big delays on the way home. Drivers who need to get to Route 301 should go to the next exit on the westbound side of Route 50 and follow the detour signs the State Highway Administration will post.

The ramp is scheduled to close again next weekend. SHA crews will be resurfacing the road at the interchange, where 100,000 vehicles pass each day.

All work is weather permitting, so if there is rain the work will be delayed.
