WASHINGTON — Starting Wednesday, emergency roadwork will temporarily close a portion of Bald Eagle Road in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
The work zone is near the Inner Loop exit ramp to Indian Head Highway/Md. 210. The State Highway Administration said crews will repair the roadway’s deteriorating shoulder.
The repairs are expected to be finished by late fall.
The exit to Indian Head Highway will remain open during the repairs, but motorists won’t be able to drive through the Bald Eagle Road intersection.
As a detour, drivers will be guided to northbound Indian Head Highway, to Livingston Road and then to Md. 414/St. Barnabas Road/Oxon Hill Road, where they can access Bald Eagle Road from the overpass.
Motorists will be able to travel through the work zone once metal pilings are installed.
The SHA has warned motorists to plan ahead and expect delays.
