MD 0137  MOUNT CARMEL ROAD IHB - BRIDGE 03050 OVER I-83 Picture
Project Name:
MD 137, Mount Carmel Road

Location of Project:
IHB - BRIDGE 03050 OVER I-83

Description:
Replace Bridge 03050 over I-83. Bicycle and pedestrian improvements will be provided where appropriate.
 
Scope:
MDOT SHA is replacing the MD 137 (Mt. Carmel Road) Bridge over I-83 (Baltimore-Harrisburg Expressway) in the Hereford community of Baltimore County.

The 62-year-old-bridge was safe, but was rated “structurally deficient” and had outlived its service life. MDOT SHA’s project design includes a new center lane to accommodate left turns from westbound MD 137 to southbound I-83, easing daily congestion and improving safety operations. More than 9,500 vehicles use MD 137 at I-83 each day.

Construction work began summer 2017. In late summer 2017, MDOT SHA's contractor installed a temporary bridge for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians to use during construction. The temporary bridge opened to traffic in October 2017.

The old bridge was demolished by late October 2017.

Construction of the new bridge is underway and will continue through fall 2018. and the $8.8 million project will be complete fall 2018, weather permitting.

Note to Commuters: The MDOT SHA Park and Ride lot on Mt. Carmel Road west of the I-83 interchange will remain open during construction. Lot users should use caution while entering and exiting the lot as it is within the bridge work zone.

Periodic construction updates will be posted on this site under "Schedule".
