Westminster, MD, Thursday, January 4, 2024 – The Carroll County Department of Public Works invites interested persons to attend an informal informational public meeting concerning the planned replacement of the Upper Beckleysville Road bridge over Murphy Run in Carroll County, Maryland.  The project aims to replace the existing single-span steel bridge with a new single-span prestressed concrete adjacent slab bridge.  The new structure will be constructed in the same location as the existing bridge. 

Construction is anticipated to occur during the 2024 construction season.  Upper Beckleysville Road will be closed to through traffic and a detour will be established to divert traffic around the project using MD 30 (Hanover Pike), Fairmount Road, Gross Mill Road, and Dave Rill Road.  Upper Beckleysville Road will remain open to local traffic.

WHAT:   The informational public meeting will acquaint the public with the project's scope, the detour route, and provide an opportunity to express any particular concerns.  Carroll County Bureau of Engineering staff will be available to answer questions.  No formal presentation will be given.  Feel free to arrive anytime between 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm.
