Glen Cove Road - Bridge #155  Bridge located just west of 1803 Glen Cove Road.
November 8, 2018 Update:  Unfortunate news, the west abutment failed this morning. Thankfully, the contractor's crews were not under the bridge at the time and all are safe. Harford County tried to keep the structure, but it is no longer safe, not practical to do so - therefore, a decision was made to move forward with a complete replacement structure. It will take approximately 24-30 months to get the replacement structure designed and constructed, but in the interim, a portable pre-fabricated truss bridge will be installed for citizens to use. Six M has already been tasked to remove the old structure. Harford County is working on a design for the temporary footers and will have Six M construct them and erect the temporary bridge under their current contract with us. The temporary bridge will only be one lane, but will be able to safely carry trucks and school buses. Harford County is anticipating the temporary bridge and road to reopen in approximately 2-3 months (January - February 2019). The County appreciates your understanding and patience and will continue to keep you updated on the progress.

November 7, 2018 Update:  The Six M company from Delta, PA has started emergency repairs to the Glen Cove Road Bridge #155. Harford County is currently anticipating a timeline of 2-3 months (January - February 2019) for reopening of the structure. Six M has pumped out the water and we can now get a better view of the damage caused by the August 31, 2018 storm. It is actually somewhat worse than originally envisioned. The County is hopeful that the bridge abutments will remain intact until the repairs can be completed, but also wanted to convey to the public the extent of the damage to the structure in case something happens and repairs cannot safely continue. 
September 4, 2018  January - February 2019 Bridge replacement
Glen Cove Road - Bridge #156 Bridge located just west of 1920 Glen Cove Road. Bridge was on the long term replacement schedule, but remained in acceptable condition.  In fact, the bridge itself appears to be relatively intact from the floods with the severe erosion to the surrounding roadbed and behind the abutments, being primarily responsible for the current closure. Since a new bridge was planned and already designed, it isn't practical to repair the existing damage if it is going to be replaced in another year or two. Therefore, the County plans to expedite the construction utilizing the current plans. Estimated closure:  12 - 18 months, dependent upon permitting.
September 4, 2018  March 4, 2020 Bridge replacement

Riviera Drive Riviera Drive from Kearney Road to Haslett Road will be closed for utility construction for approximately 3 weeks beginning Monday, December 3, 2018.

Robinson Mill Road - Bridge #154  Harford County Department of Public Works will be closing Bridge #154 located 3/10ths of a mile east of MD 136 due to the structural degradation of the supporting beams. It will be closed until further notice to all traffic, including emergency vehicles. Please make other arrangements if you travel on this roadway. March 10, 2017  Until further notice Repairs to Bridge #154
Snake Lane - Bridge #31  Bridge located just east of 2920 Snake Lane. This bridge was already slated for replacement and the project was awarded with construction scheduled to start on September 24th.  This structure did not wash out and repairs could have potentially been completed by Highway's crews, but it would have taken several days to do and would have detracted from their other flood recovery efforts.  This did not make fiscal sense considering the structure was being closed and removed in 2-3 weeks anyway. 

September 4, 2018  July 6, 2020 Bridge replacement
Tollgate Road Tollgate Road, from W Ring Factory Road to Plumtree Road, will be closed for culvert replacement and roadway reconstruction. This road closure is expected to last for 4 months.
