Road Closure and Detour at Lutheran Church Road in Lovettsville

Posted on July 27, 2023 at 1:38 PM by Shawn Zelman

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
