Project Name:
MD 36, New George's Creek Road

Location of Project:
BRIDGE 0107800 OVER NORTH BRANCH

Description:
Study to Replace Bridge Deck on Bridge 0107800 over North Branch.
 
Scope:
The bridge on MD 36 (Mount Savage Road) crossing North Branch is scheduled for rehabilitation. Originally constructed in 1960, the bridge is safe for the traveling public, but the roadway surface is nearing the end of its useful service life. Should the deterioration continue, weight restrictions (reduced loads for trucks) would need to be posted to ensure safety. This could have a significant impact on the local economy. Rehabilitating the bridge at this time will save money on future maintenance spending and support safety and mobility as part of SHA’s bridge system preservation program.

Several alternatives for maintaining traffic along MD 36 during construction were considered, including maintaining two lanes of traffic across the bridge and a complete detour of MD 36. It was determined that the bridge is wide enough to maintain two lanes of traffic during construction. Closing the bridge and detouring all traffic would reduce the construction time, but the length of detour and increased travel time made this alternative unacceptable. The preferred method for maintaining traffic during construction will be to maintain a lane of traffic in each direction and complete the work in two stages of construction.

At this time no definitive construction schedule has been set, but we anticipate the project duration will last one construction season (spring-fall). SHA will make every effort to complete this project as quickly as possible while minimizing impacts to local residents and motorists.
