IS 0070  EISENHOWER MEMORIAL HIGHWAY TC125 - OVER MD 63 Picture
Project Name:
I-70, Eisenhower Memorial Highway

Location of Project:
TC125 - OVER MD 63

Description:
Total replacement of the existing dual bridge 2110802 and 2110804 on I-70 over MD 63.
 
Scope:
The bridges on I-70 (Eisenhower Memorial Highway) over MD 63 (Greencastle Pike) are scheduled for replacement. Originally constructed in 1965, the bridges are nearing the end of their useful service life. The new bridges will have wider median shoulders to improve safety. Replacing the bridges will save money on future maintenance and support safety and mobility as part of SHA’s bridge system preservation program.

Traffic will be maintained on I-70, MD 63, and all of the ramps during construction, as replacement of the bridge will be performed in multiple stages. During the first stage, I-70 lanes will be shifted toward the outside shoulders of the bridge while the median portions of the bridges are built. In the second stage, I-70 traffic will be shifted toward the median while the outside portions of the bridges are built.

Construction began in late fall 2012 and will be complete fall 2014, weather permitting.
