Project Overview

This project will replace a bridge on westbound Route 207 (Rogers Clark Boulevard) in Caroline County over CSX railroad tracks. 

The existing 2-lane bridge was built in 1953, and is structurally deficient. 

The replacement bridge, when complete, will have two 12-foot travel lanes with a 10-foot right shoulder, and a 5-foot median shoulder. 

Construction began in January 2012, and is scheduled to end in May 2013. 

APRIL 11 - ROUTE 207 WESTBOUND DETOUR ENDS AT NOON TODAY

Beginning at noon westbound traffic on Route 207 will be shifted in stages to the new westbound bridge.   Click here for details.

Project Details

During February 2012, motorists should encounter only a shoulder closure in the work zone.

Beginning in early March, periodic single-lane closures will be needed on westbound Route 207 at the bridge to begin setting up for a detour that will last the duration of the project.

When the detour is in place, eastbound and westbound Route 207 traffic will each narrow to one lane in the work zone. 

Both directions of traffic will use the eastbound Route 207 bridge, with one travel lane in each direction. 

A concrete median barrier will divide eastbound and westbound traffic traveling on the eastbound bridge.
