MD 0068 LAPPANS ROAD BRIDGE 2103900 OVER BEAVER CREEK
MD 0068  LAPPANS ROAD BRIDGE 2103900 OVER BEAVER CREEK Picture
Project Name:
MD 68, Lappans Road

Location of Project:
BRIDGE 2103900 OVER BEAVER CREEK

Description:
Study to replace Bridge 2103900 over Beaver Creek.
 
Scope:
The MD 68 Bridge crossing over Beaver Creek, constructed in 1824, is structurally safe but is showing signs of significant deterioration that need to be addressed. The existing structure is a one lane, single span, 38 feet long stone arch bridge. In conjunction with the bridge replacement, SHA engineers will investigate alternatives to reduce the frequency of roadway over-topping due to flooding. In the preferred alternative, the bridge length will be increased and the roadway profile will be slightly raised. The proposed structure will be wider than the existing bridge to accommodate two travel lanes and provide shoulders to improve safety.

The proposed method for maintaining traffic closes MD 68 during construction and provides a detour route consisting of US 40 Alternate (Old National Pike), MD 34 (Potomac Street/Shepherdstown Pike), and MD 65 (Sharpsburg Pike).

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