Nighttime cargo deliveries will resume on Monday, Aug. 29 and Wednesday, Sept. 2.  Transports are scheduled between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.  

Motorists will encounter delays on northbound US 301 during the hauling operation.  Each convoy will travel approximately 5 mph and use both northbound lanes of US 301 from Orlando Park Drive, located just north of the Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge, to Billingsley Road in White Plains.  Motorists will not be able to pass the convoy.  If traffic delays become significant, the convoy will stop at one of nine pause point locations where police will direct traffic past the convoy.

SHA and law enforcement suggest travelers avoid the area.  If roadways remain closed after 5 a.m., notice of the extended closures will be posted on the county website (www.CharlesCountyMD.gov).  The County will also send notification via the Citizen Notification System (CNS).

For additional information about area highways, customers may contact the SHA District 5 Office in Annapolis at 410-841-1020 or 1-800-331-5603.
