Gas House Pike Bridge Replacement

Project Overview

This federally funded Capital Improvement Program (CIP) project is for improvements to Gas House Pike at Linganore Creek for the replacement of two existing structures, a larger multi-cell structure known as Gas House Pike Bridge (Structure No. F09-21) and a nearby smaller multi-cell pipe structure just west of Gas House Pike Bridge, which will become a new bridge (Structure No. F09-25). The proposed project work will include complete removal of both existing structures, installing a single 77' span prestressed girder bridge with concrete substructure and caisson foundation, installing a single 52' span prestressed girder bridge with concrete substructure and caisson foundation, installing new bridge parapets, replacing portions of the existing traffic barriers, installing new traffic barriers and end treatments, installing pipe culverts and headwall, installing storm water management facilities, installing roadway drainage improvements, installing a 10" diameter sanitary sewer line with associated items (Add-Alternate No. 1), 12" diameter water line with associated items (Add-Alternate No. 1), regrading approaches, placing full depth pavement and tying grading into existing topography, milling, patching, and surface paving along Gas House Pike from Sta. 98+40+/-, extending west for approximately 1.7 miles, to existing paved intersection of Boyers Mill Road/McKaig Road/Gas House Pike (Add-Alternate No. 2), and installing a formliner finish on the concrete parapets of the bridges' superstructures (Add-Alternate No. 3). The bridge structures and roadway approaches will have two 11-foot lanes with 5-foot shoulders to meet collector standards. The CIP project will provide needed safety improvements and reduce the frequency of flooding at this location.

Current Status

UPDATE:  The project re-advertised on January 14, 2020 as Bid No. 20-283-CP and Bid Opening occurred on February 20, 2020. The bid review and award phase phase took longer than anticipated, but the project contract is now finally awarded. On October 2, 2020, the contract was awarded to W.F. Delauter & Son, Inc. in the total contract amount of $3,654,032.89.

A Pre-Construction Meeting with the County and Contractor has been scheduled for October 15, 2020. The Notice-to-Proceed (NTP) date (Construction start) has NOT been determined yet, but construction could start as early as this fall 2020 (November 2020). Once the NTP date has been determined and the project schedule accepted, a project schedule/timeline will be posted on this webpage. A full-time road closure for the majority of construction duration and completion of the project will be required. Per the project contract, the duration for project completion is 430 calendar days. However, there is an incentive/disincentive special provision to open the road to traffic by the 360th calendar day. Therefore, the full-time road closure will be in effect for 360 calendar days (pending unforeseen circumstances or unforeseen weather) and NOT for the full contract duration of 430 calendar days. Once NTP is given, advance notification of the bridge closure will be posted at the bridge site and sent via public notification.
