County to Replace Bridge on Huntmaster Road

April 13, 2015

 

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation is scheduled to begin work to replace the short span bridge on Huntmaster Road next Monday.

   The one-lane bridge, which traverses Great Seneca Creek, on Huntmaster Road near Davis Mill Road will be replaced beginning on Monday, April 20. As a result, Huntmaster Road will be closed in both directions as work is completed. The MCDOT estimates that the work should take about five weeks, weather permitting.

   “The bridge will remain a one-lane bridge, but all approaches and decking will be repaired or replaced,” said Ester Bowring, Community Relations Manager with the MCDOT. “The bridge will be closed for part or all of the time during the work.”

  The project will be completed by MC DOT Department of Highway Services field staff and will include the removal and replacement of the existing roadway pavement, bridge approaches, and bridge deck, according to a letter sent to residents in the area from Project Manager Lacy Hanna.

   “The county has a very active bridge inspection program for both long-span and short-span bridges,” said Bowring, “when they find a bridge has deteriorated and need to take action to repair or replace all or certain parts of the bridge it is placed into the queue for work to be done.”

   The letter explained that Huntmaster Road would be closed between Davis Mill Road and Quick Fox Lane, and motorists would have to take a detour using Blunt Road and Brink Road to get across Great Seneca Creek.

   Work hours will be from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
