Work has begun to replace the Clarksburg Road Bridge and rehabilitate the deteriorated concrete bridge abutments. The project is part of the approved Damascus Master Plan. The existing concrete and steel superstructure will be replaced with a new concrete bridge and 450 feet of the approaching roadway will be reconstructed. The bridge will have two 11-foot wide travel lanes and four-foot wide shoulders on each side of the roadway, for a total width of 30 feet that will allow for on-road bicycle traffic.
One lane of the bridge will be open at all times to allow through traffic while work is completed. Traffic will be controlled by a temporary traffic signal that will be installed prior to the start of construction. Clarksburg Road will be open to two-way traffic throughout construction.
The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2011.
