Safer Roads and Lower Repair Costs

Road bans help the MD extend the lifespan of roadways under its purview, which in turn makes them safer for motorists and reduces repair costs over time. Bans are periodically needed during times of construction and maintenance, and annually during the spring thaw when frost movement can damage roads more easily.
