Project Name:
I-68, National Freeway

Location of Project:
TC11 - BRIDGE 1093 OVER MD 639

Description:
Rehabilitate Bridge 0109300 over MD 639.
 
Scope:
The existing bridge on the I-68 over MD 639 (Willowbrook Road) near Cumberland is scheduled for rehabilitation. Originally constructed in 1956, the bridge is safe for the traveling public, but the roadway surface is nearing the end of its useful service life. The rehabilitated bridge will provide slightly wider shoulders to improve safety. Rehabilitating the bridge, at this time, will save money on future maintenance spending and support safety and mobility as part of MDOT SHA’s bridge system preservation program.

Several alternatives for maintaining traffic along the I-68 roadway during construction were considered, including maintaining the existing two traffic lanes in each direction across the bridge, reducing traffic to a single lane in each direction, and a complete detour of I-68 traffic. It was determined that both lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction while completing the bridge rehabilitation in 4 stages of construction.

MDOT SHA will make every effort to complete this project as quickly as possible while minimizing impacts to local residents and motorists. Construction is scheduled to begin early Spring, 2018, and be completed by Summer, 2020, weather permitting.
