Project Name:
US 40, Pulaski Highway

Location of Project:
BRIDGE 03034 AND BRIDGE 03035 OVER LITTLE GUNPOWDER FALLS AND GUNPOWDER FALLS

Description:
Replace and widen substructure on Bridges 0303403 and 0303404 over Little Gunpowder Falls and Bridges 0303503 and 0303504 over Big Gunpowder Falls.
 
Scope:
The bridges over Little Gunpowder Falls and Gunpowder Falls were originally constructed in 1935. Both sets of bridges are showing signs of advancing deterioration in the concrete bridge deck and some of the other supporting elements. The roadway surfaces of each bridge have been repaired and paved with asphalt to improve their smoothness until this project is advanced to the construction phase. SHA plans to widen these bridges to provide full outside shoulders to match the roadway approaches along with the structural rehabilitation work. These actions will reduce future expenditures for the maintenance of the bridges and support safety and mobility as part of SHA’s bridge system preservation program.

Construction is expected to begin in Summer 2018. All lanes of traffic will be maintained at each bridge except for a 60 day duration in the summer of 2019 during which only one lane will be maintained in the eastbound and westbound directions. This revised Maintenance of Traffic scheme will be safer for both the traveling public and construction workers, since it eliminates a stage of construction where the traffic would be split around the work zone. Maintaining one lane in each direction will also be safer because it will have a single wide lane, instead of two narrow lanes running close to the concrete barriers. An incentive payment/disincentive penalty will be included in the contract in order ensure that the contractor adheres to the 60 day limit. The overall duration of construction will be approximately 2 years. SHA will make every effort to complete this project as quickly as possible while minimizing impacts to local residents and motorists.

This project is funded for construction under Governor Larry Hogan’s Investment in Highways and Bridges program aimed at addressing Maryland’s structurally deficient bridges.
