This Capital Improvement Program project is for replacement of Hessong Bridge Road bridge over Little Hunting Creek near Blacks Mill Road. The project will replace the existing one lane Acrow panel bridge with a two lane structure and improve the roadway approaches to meet collector standards. The new bridge/structure would also meet current design criteria (two 11 foot lanes with 5 foot shoulders).
The project is currently in its Study phase. An engineering consultant analyzed the existing conditions and provided four potential alternatives for the replacement structure. Design funding is currently scheduled to become available in July 2018. Construction funding is proposed for July 2020.
A public meeting was held on April 5, 2018 at Thurmont Regional Library. Please see below for the Public Meeting Minutes and Update to Question 7, general information handout, and the slideshow presentation from the meeting.
