Construction to Begin September 6; Motorists May Experience Delays
PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (August 18, 2011)—Road work at the Chaneyville Road Bridge at Graham Creek in Owings is scheduled to commence on or about September 6 to repair pavement settlement at the northern approach to the bridge.
Motorists may experience traffic delays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. during construction and are encouraged to take alternate routes if possible. One-way traffic will be maintained throughout the project period. The work is anticipated to be completed by the end of October.
The repairs will consist of replacing the settled pavement, grouting the existing rip-rap in front of the wing walls to fill the voids and installing a steel sheeting bulkhead with a concrete cap to help prevent migration of soils from underneath the roadway with the hope of avoiding any future settlement.
The total cost is approximately $145,000, which was allocated by a Board of County Commissioners-approved budget adjustment to the countys capital budget and includes the cost of the construction, materials testing and inspection services. The Federal Bridge Program administered by the State Highway Administration will reimburse the county for 80 percent of the total costs.
