Weather permitting, on Wednesday, April 21st, work crews from Milton Stamper Builders will begin installation of a traffic signal and other improvements at the railroad underpass on Mitchell Avenue. In order to give the crews enough space to work, a portion of the street must be closed to traffic. Therefore, beginning at 7:30 AM on Wednesday morning, Mitchell Avenue will be closed to traffic between Langdon Street and the entrance to Maryland Metals. Traffic will be forced to detour via other City streets; motorists approaching the closure will encounter cones, barricades, detour signs, and other traffic control devices. This closure will remain in place continuously for the duration of the project, which is scheduled to be completed around the end of June.
Emergency vehicles will not be able to pass through this section of Mitchell Avenue while the closure is in place.
Please contact the Department of Parks & Engineering at 301-739-8577, extension 125 if there are any questions regarding this advisory.
