Clear Spring Road near Conococheague Creek bridge to be closed April 23

April 14, 2011

WILLIAMSPORT — Clear Spring Road (Md. 68) near the Conococheague Creek bridge north of Williamsport will be temporarily closed Saturday, April 23, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration said in a news release.

The road will be closed from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. 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.

SHA suggests drivers use the following detours:

• 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.

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