Bridge Weight Limit Lowered

Bridge Weight Limit Lowered

The Washington County Engineering Department has announced that the Marble Quarry Road Bridge weight restriction posting has been lowered to 3 tons effective immediately. The restriction applies to the steel beam / timber deck bridge over Little Antietam Creek, the closest bridge to Mount Briar Road of the 3 bridges on that road, in the Southern portion of the county.
Recent inspections observed worsening conditions to the bridge that require a lowering of the current posting. The 3-ton posting will remain into effect until the scheduled replacement of the bridge or when its condition deteriorates to the extent that it needs to be closed.
Construction for the replacement is anticipated to start in late spring and be completed by December of 2006.
