On or about July 31 through August 11, 2023, weather permitting, access to Lutheran Church Road at Berlin Turnpike in Lovettsville will be temporarily closed to vehicular traffic during daytime hours. A detour will be put in place to direct traffic around Lutheran Church Road to avoid construction of sanitary sewer improvements associated with the new Lovettsville Fire & Rescue #12 Replacement Station. Drivers should use extra caution when traveling through this area and follow all directions from the posted signs and road crews.
Construction will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Fridays. The entrance to the Heritage Highlands Retirement Community at Harper’s Mill Way will remain open during construction and will not be impacted by the detour plans.
Drivers should follow the detour to enter and exit from Lutheran Church Road to Berlin Turnpike utilizing Householder Road and Axline Road. See detour map.

Beginning the week of March 13, 2023, contractors will begin installing stormwater management controls and clearing trees at the location of the new Lovettsville Fire & Rescue Station #12 Replacement project adjacent to the existing Fire & Rescue Station on Berlin Turnpike.
The existing Fire & Rescue Station will remain operational throughout the duration of construction with minimal disruptions as construction entrances will be located off Berlin Turnpike and Lutheran Church Road.
Located on Berlin Turnpike in Lovettsville, the current Lovettsville Fire & Rescue Station building was erected in 1974 and has had two subsequent additions built. Fire & Rescue Station #12 houses an engine, tanker, basic life support ambulance and brush truck. Construction is estimated to be completed in fall 2024.
