Beginning on May 5th, work crews from Concrete General will be making repairs to the abutments and deck of the bridge that carries Jefferson Street over Hamilton Run. This work will involve repairs underneath the bridge, and the eventual milling and overlay of the bridge deck. In order to give the crews enough space to work, one lane of the bridge will be closed at various times; at least one lane of traffic will remain open, and the contractor will use flagmen to direct traffic through the work zone. Motorists approaching the closure will encounter cones, barricades, flagmen, and other traffic control devices. Some temporary traffic delays are likely, and motorists should consider alternate routes that avoid the work area. It is anticipated that this work will extend until the end of May.Emergency vehicles will be able to pass though this section of Jefferson Street while the work is being performed, but dispatchers should be aware of the potential for traffic congestion and delays.Please contact the Department of Parks & Engineering at 301-739-8577, extension 125 if there are any questions regarding this advisory.
