MDOT SHA Begins Sewer Work Along US 1 in College Park

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is installing a temporary sewer system on US 1 (Baltimore Avenue) near Navahoe Street in College Park. This system will keep residents and businesses from having their sewer services impacted during construction.

Work is permitted weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., and overnight, seven days a week between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. During these work hours, crews will close Navahoe Street from US 1 to 48th Avenue and detour traffic around the work zone through late March. Additional work hours and lane closures on US 1 may be needed, and construction equipment may be disruptive. The work is part of MDOT SHA’s project to improve US 1 between College Avenue and MD 193 (University Boulevard). Learn more about the project hereFor more information, visit: https://www.collegeparkmd.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=223.

College Park Tree Programs

Would you like a street tree planted in the right of way in front of your home? Spring tree plantings are being planned. If you are interested, please reach out to balexander@collegeparkmd.gov.

Why plant trees on your property?
