During Phase 1 of the project construction, local traffic only will have access to residences along Hendron Road, between the Sedalia Medical Center Driveway entrance and Marlowa Drive/Glendening Drive. Detour signs will be posted, directing northbound traffic to use Main Street to State Route 317, to Hendron Road. Motorists travelling to Marlowa Drive or the Glendening School Campus, should use State Route 317 to Hendron Road.
