Bridge Repairs On Route 100 Will Bring Ramp Closures, Detours
GLEN BURNIE, MD - Crews will repair two Maryland Route 100 bridges over the next few weekends, bringing weekend ramp closures and detours to Anne Arundel County.
The work is focused on the crossings over Maryland Route 2, also known as Gov. Ritchie Highway. The work zone will extend from the Oakwood Road overpass to Maryland Route 10, also called the Arundel Expressway.
- Remove the existing pavement
- Patch the road
- Pour the concrete decks
- Waterproof the bridge decks
- Asphalt the bridge approach pavement
- Repair the concrete curbs and barriers of each bridge
The work begins Friday. It's expected to be done by the second weekend in October, weather permitting.
Crews will place concrete barriers Friday to let them work safely in a shortened timeframe.
Over the four weekends, workers will close and detour ramps Fridays through Mondays from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night.
Weeknight lane closures are also permitted if needed.
Here's a schedule of the project:
Weekends of Sept. 15 to Sept. 18 and Sept. 23 to Sept. 25 (Eastbound Route 100)
- Crews will temporarily close the southbound Route 2 ramp to eastbound Route 100 from 9 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday for two weekends.
- Drivers will be guided along a signed detour each weekend directing traffic to eastbound Route 100.
Weekends of Sept. 29 to Oct. 2 and Oct. 6 to Oct. 9 (Westbound Route 100)
- Crews will temporarily close the ramp from northbound Route 2 to westbound Route 100 from 9 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday for two weekends.
- Drivers will be able to use the right turn movement from northbound Route 2 to access eastbound Maryland Route 177 (Mountain Road) toward Gibson Island.
- The ramp from Route 177 onto westbound Route 100 will be closed.
- The ramp from northbound Route 10 to westbound Route 100 will be closed.
- Drivers will be guided along a signed detour each weekend directing traffic to westbound Route 100.
Message signs on Routes 2, 100 and 177 will alert drivers of the roadwork. Cones will guide motorists through the detours.
The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration tapped Gaithersburg contractor Concrete General Inc. for the project.
"The State Highway Administration understands temporary ramp and lane closures can be an inconvenience, but this work is necessary to ensure a safe and reliable transportation system," MDOT SHA said in a press release. "Motorists are asked to reduce speeds approaching and while in active work zones. Drivers are asked to stay alert, stay focused, look for reduced speed limits as well as driving pattern changes, and slow down in construction zones."
