Cedarville Road Bridge on Thursday, January 12, 2017 temporarily closing.
The Prince George’s County Department of
Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) will temporarily close Cedarville
Road Bridge on Thursday, January 12, 2017 to allow for the replacement of the
existing bridge over Mattawoman Creek.
The current bridge has deteriorated, requiring replacement of the entire
structure. There is a detour plan in
place during construction of the replacement bridge.
“The replacement bridge will be wider to
better accommodate vehicular traffic,” said Darrell B. Mobley, Director of the
Department of Public Works and Transportation.
“DPW&T continues to work in a concentrated effort to ensure that
County roadways and bridges are well-maintained and safe for all motorists.”
While some preliminary construction
activities have already begun, major construction activities associated with
the bridge replacement will begin after the closure. Construction is expected
to take one (1) year, and motorists should use the primary detour routes of
Brandywine Road, Crain Highway (MD 301) and Branch Avenue (MD 5). Motorists are advised to stay alert and be
aware as you travel on the roadways.
