Located between Abingdon Road and MD 136 (Calvary Road), SHA will close the bridge to all traffic in late June after Harford County Public Schools complete the 2014-15 school year.
Truck traffic will be detoured to I-95 using MD 24 and MD 543, while normal vehicular traffic will be detoured to US 40 using Abingdon Road and MD 543.
The open-house style public meeting will not have a formal presentation. SHA project team members will be available to address questions and concerns about the bridge replacement project and summer 2015 detours.
