The Triple Bridges Project will replace the Annapolis Road, Maisel Street, and Waterview Avenue bridges over MD 295 from early 2019 through early 2023. The project will include:
Replacement of all 3 bridges with similar structures
Addition of an auxiliary lane on MD 295
Modifications to the on and off ramps at Waterview Avenue
Removal of an existing abandoned railroad tunnel and replacement with retaining wall
Guide sign replacement on MD 295 from Bush Street to the City/County line
Resurfacing of Annapolis Road from Patapsco Avenue to the Waterview Avenue bridge
The project features the following enhancements:
New bridge substructures will match the look of the existing stone walls
An added 2 feet of walkway width on the Maisel Street pedestrian bridge and artistic bridge fencing
10 foot wide sidewalk on the north side of the Waterview Avenue bridge and decorative railings
Decorative light poles and railings on the Annapolis Road bridge
Complete pedestrian Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) upgrades throughout the entire project
The Maisel Street pedestrian bridge and the Annapolis Road bridge will be closed for periods of the project as they are reconstructed. The Waterview Avenue bridge will be constructed in phases with traffic maintained throughout construction (with the exception of a few weekend closure periods, detours will be in place.) In order to keep pedestrian crossings available for school children east of MD 295, the north half of the Waterview Avenue bridge (including 10 foot sidewalk) will be reconstructed before the Maisel Street pedestrian bridge is closed. The newly constructed Waterview Avenue bridge sidewalk will be utilized as part of the pedestrian detour route.
Two lanes of vehicular traffic each way on MD 295 in the construction zone will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.
