State Highway Administration to Hold Open House on Carroll Avenue Bridge Repairs Planned for 2015

The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will be holding an information session to acquaint the public with a proposed bridge repair project for the Maryland Route 195 Bridge over Sligo Creek and Sligo Creek Parkway. The project will replace the bridge deck, sidewalk, and railings and rehabilitate major elements of the bridge, including the beams and columns that support the deck. To complete the work, the bridge will be closed to traffic and a detour established around the area that will route traffic along Philadelphia, Maple and Flower avenues.

At the open house, staff will present display boards detailing the project. No formal presentations will be made, so residents are invited to stop in anytime during the session, which will be held on October 2 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Takoma Park Middle School cafeteria, 7611 Piney Branch Road, Silver Spring.

Additional project details are available on SHA’s website.
