Project Name:
MD 464, Souder Road

Location of Project:
BRIDGE 1009000 OVER LITTLE CATOCTIN CREEK

Description:
Study to replace Bridge 1009000 over Little Catoctin Creek.
 
Scope:
The bridge on MD 464 (Point of Rocks Road) over Little Catoctin Creek in Frederick County is scheduled for replacement. Originally constructed in 1933, the bridge is safe for the traveling public but is nearing the end of its useful service life. Replacing the bridge at this time will save money on future maintenance spending, and support safety and mobility as a part of SHA’s bridge preservation program.

The preferred method for maintaining traffic during construction is to close the bridge and detour traffic. Maintaining two-way traffic in a single lane with the use of a system of temporary traffic signals was also considered. The increased costs associated with realigning the roadway and building the bridge in two stages, combined with decreased work zone safety due to limited sight distance and high speeds made this alternative unacceptable.

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