Project Name:
MD 355, Frederick Road

Location of Project:
BRIDGE 15053 OVER LITTLE BENNETT CREEK

Description:
Replace Bridge 15053 over Little Bennett Creek.
 
Scope:
The MD 355 Bridge crossing over Bennett Creek, constructed in 1925, is structurally safe but is showing signs of significant deterioration and needs to be addressed. A meandering stream alignment is causing concerns with the stability of the approach roadway embankment at the southeast corner of the bridge. 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.

The existing structure is a single span 40 foot long concrete girder bridge. The proposed bridge will be a two span 116 foot long bridge, which will accommodate the existing travel lanes and be wider than the existing to provide shoulders for improved safety. Traffic will be maintained through the use of a temporary detour bridge located immediately to the west (downstream) of the existing bridge. The proposed bridge will be built on the existing roadway alignment.

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 Fall 2018. It is anticipated that construction will be completed by Summer 2020, weather permitting.
