Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation’s Division of Transportation Engineering will soon begin reconstructing the bridge that carries Cedar Lane over Rock Creek. The bridge was originally constructed in 1959 and is used by more than 12,500 vehicles a day. A routine inspection found that the bridge superstructure and pier caps need to be reconstructed.
During the first phase of the project this winter, a fabricator will construct and install a temporary pedestrian bridge across Rock Creek. A trail south of the bridge will also be built. Phase two of the project will begin at the end of the school year. Cedar Lane will be closed and vehicles will be detoured.
More information about the project is available on the County’s website.
