MD 0028 CLAY STREET IHB - BRIDGE 1002900 OVER MONOCACY RIVER
Status
6/14/2019Beginning at 10 p.m. on Friday, June 21 and continuing until 5 a.m. on Monday, June 24, the MD 28 (Dickerson Road) Bridge over the Monocacy River Bridge in Dickerson will be closed.

The MDOT SHA will close and detour the road so the contractor can patch part of the travel lane and make repairs. Crews will detour travelers using MD 109 (Old Hundred Road), MD 355 (Urbana Pike), MD 80 (Fingerboard Road) and MD 85 (Buckeystown Pike). Motorists are encouraged to allow extra time if traveling during the closure.

After the total closure ends on Monday, the MDOT SHA will open one lane of MD 28 and alternate traffic using two temporary traffic signals installed at both ends of the bridge. The single lane closure is necessary for MDOT SHA’s contractor, Corman Kokosing Construction Company of Annapolis Junction, to complete the work. The project is expected to be complete spring 2020.

6/3/2019MD 28 has one lane open and traffic is alternating until spring 2020 utilizing two temporary traffic signals installed at both ends of the bridge. The single lane closure is necessary for MDOT SHA’s contractor, Corman Kokosing Construction Company of Annapolis Junction, to complete the work.
 
5/24/2019Beginning at 10 p.m. on Friday, May 31 and continuing until 5 a.m. on Monday, June 3, the MDOT SHA will close the MD 28 (Dickerson Road) Bridge over the Monocacy River in Dickerson. The total closure and detour are necessary to set concrete barrier in advance of the installation and activation of a temporary traffic signal that will alternate traffic throughout the duration of the bridge rehabilitation project.

MDOT SHA will detour travelers using MD 109 (Old Hundred Road), MD 355 (Urbana Pike), MD 80 (Fingerboard Road) and MD 85 (Buckeystown Pike). Motorists are encouraged to allow extra time if traveling during the closure.

After the total closure ends on Monday, June 3, MDOT SHA will open one lane of MD 28 and alternate traffic until spring 2020 utilizing two temporary traffic signals installed at both ends of the bridge. The single lane closure is necessary for MDOT SHA’s contractor, Corman Kokosing Construction Company of Annapolis Junction, to complete the work. There will be additional bridge closures on weekends as needed throughout the rehabilitation project. MDOT SHA will issue traffic alerts and utilize VMS boards to notify motorists approximately one week before a total closure begins.

While the bridge is structurally sound, the bridge deck has outlived its useful service life and needs to be replaced. The construction will include replacing the bridge deck, replacing sections of the steel truss bridge structure, repairing the concrete bridge piers and removing years of debris buildup under the bridge. The entire project is expected to be complete spring 2020.
 
4/16/2019This project is 36% complete.

Currently, work is temporarily suspended as MDOT SHA augments the project plan. We expect work to resume in spring 2019.
 
1/28/2019This project is currently 34% complete.

The contractor has the temporary signal hooked up and ready for operation but crews are waiting on details for some additional work before implementing the single lane closure.

The contractor continues steel work repairs under the bridge.

In late winter, crews will be finished under the bridge and switch to the top sections. The top work will require the bridge to be shut down again with weekend detours.
 
10/26/2018This project is currently 8% complete and is scheduled to be fully complete by winter 2019.

Recently completed:

The contractor has completed clearing all the trees and installing erosion and sediment controls necessary to complete the work. A temporary signal has been placed at opposite ends of the bridge and we are waiting on power to begin operation. The signal will be used to alternate traffic across a single lane of the bridge while we work on the closed lane.

Current work items/areas:

The contractor is currently working underneath the bridge above the Monocacy on placing a work platform in order to access the bridge for repairs.

Upcoming work areas/items over the next month:

After the work platform is completed, Corman Kokosing will begin steel repair work underneath. The repairs being done under the bridge in this phase of work can be done utilizing lane closures and temporary detours without any concern to the traffic traveling above us.

Please explain any upcoming work that may be more disruptive than usual (detours, shifts, night work):

Weekend detours are likely right now starting Friday at 10pm and going until Monday at 5am. Check the message boards for more details. Daily flagging operations from 9am until 3pm are also likely. Soon the temporary traffic signal will be in operation with barrier wall across the bridge to limit traffic to alternating one way.
