Work begins this month on a federally funded $1.4 million pedestrian/traffic safety improvement project along Route 5 in St. Mary’s City.

Construction flag personnel will be controlling flow through the work site during construction hours, which will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays. The project is estimated to be complete in early September.

Features of the project include:

• Addition of sidewalks and curbed gutters on both sides of the road and bike lanes added between State House Road and Trinity Church Road.

• Realignment of the intersection of Trinity Church Road with Maryland Route 5.

• Additional lighting along both sides of Maryland Route 5 between the college’s main crosswalk and Trinity Church Road.

• Improved stormwater management through a bioretention zone along the northbound shoulder of Maryland Route 5.
