April 13, 2012

The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will begin cleaning and painting 17 bridges in Allegany and Washington counties next week, which could cause lane closures during the week, according to a release from the SHA.

The SHA will work on eight bridges in Washington County, all of which are in and around Hancock. They are: Main Street westbound in Hancock (Md. 144) over Tonoloway Creek, the I-70 westbound ramp over I-70 eastbound, I-70 eastbound over the I-68 ramp, I-68 westbound over I-70 eastbound and the I-68 ramp, both the eastbound and westbound I-70 bridges over the Tonoloway Creek, and the eastbound and westbound I-68 bridges over Sideling Hill Creek.

The project includes repainting the steel beams and bridge structures.

Single-lane closures as a result of the project could be in effect Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., and double-lane closures could occur Sunday through Thursday between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m.

K&K Painting and Construction Co. of Baltimore has been contracted to work on the project, which will be completed in two separate contracts, according to the SHA. The project costs $2.1 million, including $1.1 million to work on the bridges in Washington County.

The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2013, according to the SHA.
