Project Name:
US 301, Blue Star Memorial Highway

Location of Project:
BRIDGE 1701401 OVER CHESTER RIVER

Description:
Study to Rehabilitate Bridge 1701401 over Chester River.
 
Scope:
The bridge on US 301 northbound (Blue Star Memorial Highway) crossing Chester River is scheduled for rehabilitation. Originally constructed in 1955, the bridge is safe for the traveling public, but the bridge deck surface is nearing the end of its useful service life. Should the deterioration continue, weight restrictions (reduced loads for trucks) would need to be posted to ensure safety. This would have a significant impact on the local economy as well as severely impact this vital trucking route. Rehabilitating the bridge at this time will save money on future maintenance spending and support safety and mobility as part of SHA’s bridge system preservation program.

Various maintenance of traffic schemes are currently being evaluated.

At this time no definitive construction schedule has been set, but we anticipate the project duration will last one construction season (spring-fall).
