Beginning Monday, July 21, through Friday, July 25, 2014, CSX Transportation will repair the railroad crossing on MD-6 (Charles Street). This work will require the temporary closure of the road in La Plata for up to five days. No vehicles will be able to cross the tracks during this time.
Motorists will still be able to access the hospital or physician offices via alternative routes. Emergency traffic to University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center (UM CRMC) can stay on MD-6 (Charles Street) and follow the blue “H” signs.
Commuters should allow extra travel time in their schedule as the closure will result in increased traffic and probable delays along designated detour routes and other alternative travel routes. For access routes to UM CRMC, UM Charles Regional OB/GYN, UM Vascular Center and UM Surgical Care, visit www.CharlesRegional.org.
Travelers may also visit MD511.org to plan their routes in advance. For more information about the closure, visit www.CharlesCountyMD.gov or contact the Charles County Government Citizen’s Liaison Office at 301-645-0550. Citizens with special needs may contact the Maryland Relay Service at 711, or Relay Service TDD: 800-735-2258.
