US 13 Bridge Project Extends to 7-Day Schedule

Posted:

POCOMOKE, Md.- The State Highway Administration's (SHA) first phase of the bridge deck replacement on the southbound dual lanes of the US 13 Bridge over the Pocomoke River remains on schedule, the agency said Friday, but as intermittent night time work on the project ceases, construction begins seven days-a-week on Sunday, Sept. 28. SHA said construction crews will work ten hours every day, weather permitting, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Much of the recent work on the southbound lanes concentrated on the substructure under the bridge. For the remainder of the first phase, the project will focus on milling then resurfacing the southbound US 13 lanes, the agency said.

This first phase is currently on schedule to be completed by late Nov. 2014. In spring 2015, the two northbound lanes of the bridge will begin to be replaced, and the entire project is expected to be completed by fall 2015, according to SHA. Motorists should expect one of the two lanes in each direction to be closed during construction.

After experiencing numerous motor vehicle crashes within the project work zone, an Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) camera was installed on site and through the construction area reduced significantly. In early September state and local law enforcement issued 136 speeding violations with fines up to $140 each, in just four days.

Anyone with questions about the new work schedule for the project should contact Gee Williams, SHA District Community Liaison at gwilliams10@sha.state.md.us or phone 443-463-7141.
