Cove Point Liquefaction Project Team is advising motorists to plan for possible nighttime traffic delays Sunday night, Oct. 16
Delays are possible between 9 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, and 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 17, on MD Route 2/4 from the Governor Thomas Johnson Bridge north to Cove Point Road.
The transport is an important part of the Dominion Cove Point Liquefaction Project. The largest equipment arrives by barge at the temporary pier in Solomons. From there, it is moved on specially designed transport vehicles north on Maryland Route 2/4 to the terminal on Cove Point Road.
The transport travels north on Route 2/4 and at several points switch into the southbound lane, still traveling north, to avoid obstacles. Maryland State Police and Calvert County Sheriff’s Office will control traffic to maintain safe conditions.
The process involves local law enforcement, State Highway Administration and emergency management to ensure each haul is conducted safely and with minimal impacts to the community and traveling public. The transports require permits from the State Highway Administration and are to occur at night, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., to minimize impacts to traffic.
