HAVRE DE GRACE - On Monday, the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOTSHA) started a renovation project on the two-lane bridge spanning Grays Run on Philadelphia Road just southwest of Aberdeen.

The project is a part of the State Highway Administration's program for bridge system preservation. It will involve refurbishing the bridge deck, substituting the parapets, and implementing new guardrails on both ends of the roadway leading to the bridge, according to MDOTSHA.

Construction began on Monday, and drivers will encounter weekday lane closures on the bridge, with flagging operations managing bidirectional traffic from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. until the project is completed. Overnight closures will occur from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Sunday to Thursday.

However, the bridge, nestled on Route 7 between Holly Oak Circle and South Stepney Road, will stay accessible during these operations. The bridge will remain accessible during these operations.

The renovation is expected to be concluded by the end of the summer, given favorable weather conditions, and will cost an estimated $420,000.

Any inquiries about the project can be directed to the State Highway Administration Office of Structures, Structures Remedial Engineering Division at 410-545-8309.

SHA requests travelers to account for additional travel time, remain vigilant, and exercise patience while traversing the work zone.
