Carroll Avenue in Takoma Park Closed for One Year for Bridge Construction

As part of a $12 million MD 195 (Carroll Avenue) Bridge rehabilitation project, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) has closed MD 195 between Jefferson Street and Flower Avenue for one year. The bridge is expected to reopen in July 2017.

Traffic detours on MD 195 are in place directing drivers to use Old Carroll Avenue, Sligo Creek Parkway, Maple Avenue, Maplewood Avenue and Flower Avenue.

During the closure, crews will replace a significant portion of the bridge arch and structure components.  SHA installed a temporary pedestrian bridge to accommodate park users.
