The Glendale realignment project will remove a curve in the road and provide entrances to the north and south portion at the front of Glendale Road.
The work is expected to begin on Glendale Road on April 24 between U.S. Route 219 and Zeddock Miller Road and continue through the summer months. There is currently no estimated date of completion.
"This project has actually been around for a while and Glendale is one of the main county roads connecting Garrett County," said Paul Edwards, chairman of The Board of Garrett County Commissioners. “This work is to address safety concerns but also can help us with economic development."
Most of the work is expected to be completed with a one-lane flagging operation weekly Monday through Friday.
A complete closure and detour are also expected on or around July 5, 2023. Traffic flow will be impacted during the duration of the project phase and the public should expect travel delays.
The total estimated cost of the project is $4.1 million. It includes the following: grading, drainage, subgrade construction aggregate base course, asphalt base and surface, concrete curb, signage, striping, and site stabilization.
