A State Highway Administration project beginning next week along U.S. 40 near Frederick is expected to cause daytime lane closings through late August.

The $1.2 million project is meant to improve the ride quality on U.S. 40 between Old Camp Road and the ramps to Interstate 70.

Crews from contractor F.O. Day of Rockville will remove the top layer of asphalt, patch the road surface, pave and then restore pavement markers and lane striping in the area.

Single lanes are expected to be closed Mondays through Fridays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., with arrow boards, cones, and barrels to direct drivers through the area.

About 15,200 vehicles a day use this section of road.
