Glen Road Bridge (M-0148)


This project provides for the replacement of the existing Glen Road Bridge over Sandy Branch. The existing bridge, built in 1930 and repaired in 1992, is a single 12-foot span concrete slab structure carrying a 21-foot 7-inch clear roadway. The proposed replacement bridge includes a single span box culvert carrying an 18-foot roadway and a 2-foot shoulder on each side. The project includes approach roadway work at each end of the bridge as necessary to tie-in to the existing roadway. The bridge and road will be closed to traffic during construction. Accelerated bridge construction techniques will be utilized to minimize the disruption to the traveling public and local community.

Currently in design phase expected to be completed in fall 2021. Construction is scheduled in the summer of 2022.
