Improvements To Begin Next Week On Rt. 75 Bridge Over I-70

The work will take place during the overnight hours.








New Market, Md (KM) Overnight work is expected to begin this coming  Sunday, June 13th  along the Route 75 (Green Valley Road) bridge over Interstate 70 in New Market.

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration says crews will repair and patch the roadway. The work will take place Sundays through Fridays from 8:00 PM until 5:00 AM   Crew will work on the northbound lanes first, and switch to the southbound lanes after two weeks. The project  is expected to be completed in July, SHA says.

Motorists can expect single lane closures on Route 75.  SHA will use electronic signs, cones and barrels to alert drivers about the upcoming work zone, and any lane closures.

SHA says this is part of a larger project to replace the Route 75 bridge deck. That work is expected to begin in 2023.
