Work Zone Moves to SS Transit Center

Beginning on or about August 20, crews will be moving equipment from a work zone on East-West Highway to the Purple Line work zone adjacent to the Paul S. Sarbanes Transit Center (SSTC). This will occur between the hours of 11 p.m. - 4 a.m. to minimize the impact to the public. Temporary lane closures will occur to facilitate the safe relocation of the equipment.
