Takoma Park’s Carroll Avenue bridge was scheduled to close June 13. But, the Verizon strike delayed it a month. The tentative date for the closure is now Monday, July18, according to Michael Brown, State Highway Administration Area Engineer.
The bridge is badly in need of repair so extensive that the bridge will not re-open to traffic until winter 2018, according to the SHA project information webpage.
A pedestrian bridge was recently installed next to the old bridge. It affords views of the old bridge’s crumbling, rotting structure and the ongoing construction. Of note was the “floor” built under the bridge. It forms a cover over Sligo Creek which passes under the bridge, and the bike path that parallels it.
Also of interest were large white blocks wired in place over the top of the old bridge’s arches. These, said Michael Brown, are polystyrene material positioned to prevent damage from falling debris.
During the repairs, traffic on Carroll Avenue, State Route 195 will be re-routed through the city. Here is a link to the detour map. The temporary traffic lights installed along the detour route are scheduled to begin blinking July 7, and go into operation July 18.
