Clear Spring Road near Williamsport to be closed this weekend

March 30, 2011

WILLIAMSPORT — Clear Spring Road (Md. 68) near the Conococheague Creek bridge north of Williamsport will be temporarily closed this weekend, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration said in a news release.

The SHA expects to close the roadway early Saturday morning and reopen it by Sunday evening, weather permitting.  

Tree branches and other debris wedged beneath the bridge will be removed to restore normal water flow, according to the release.

The closure of the two-lane road is necessary to provide ample room to place a crane on the bridge to clear the debris that occurs after heavy rains, the release said.

Traffic will be detoured as follows:

  • Motorists north of the bridge will turn left on Pinesburg Road, right onto Kemps Mill Road, right on Md. 63, right on U.S. 11 and back to Md. 68.
  • Motorists south of the bridge will turn right on U.S. 11 (Potomac Street) in Williamsport, then do a quick left onto Md. 63 (Greencastle Pike), a left on Kemps Mill Road and a left on Pinesburg Road back to Md. 68.
SHA awarded the $4,000 project to Hull’s Crane Service of Keedysville.  

Anyone with questions about the project should call SHA’s District 6 Office at 301-729-8400 or 800-760-7138.
