The State Highway Administration will begin resurfacing 4.7 miles of Coastal Highway in Ocean City.

The agency said Friday in a news release that the $3.4 million project will include grinding, milling, patching, resurfacing and restriping. Some 34,000 tons of new asphalt will be used.

The project will also involve the application of 90,000 linear feet of new striping and 8,300 square feet of new symbols and letters to mark crosswalks and bike and bus lanes.

The area affected runs from the Delaware state line to 62nd Street near MD 90.

The agency says crews may work extended hours to make sure the project is completed before Memorial Day weekend.
