PROJECT COMPLETED Carroll Avenue Bridge Construction

About Carroll Ave Bridge Construction

The Maryland Department of Transportation’s (MDOT) State Highway Administration (SHA) began a major rehabilitation of the MD 195 (Carroll Avenue) Bridge over Sligo Creek and Sligo Creek Parkway in the fall of 2015. Work included the complete replacement of the bridge deck (driving surface), beams, columns above the arches, sidewalks, railings, and ornamental lighting. The project  along Carroll Avenue extended from the intersection at Jefferson Avenue to the entrance of the Washington Adventist Hospital. The project also included constructing new sidewalk along the east side of Carroll Avenue between Old Carroll Avenue and the bridge. It included upgrading existing sidewalks and ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, while improving roadway drainage. In the interest of safety, the bridge was closed and traffic was detoured during construction.
