Maryland Shuts Frederick County Bridge

Maryland's State Highway Administration has closed the Point of Rocks Road Bridge over Catoctin Creek in southwestern Frederick County for repairs. SHA expects it will stay shut for up to four weeks.

The bridge is scheduled to be replaced in 2010, but SHA said a recent assessment showed it needs to repaired sooner than that. The safest and quickest way is to accomplish that is to close the road, according to the highway administration.

But about 4,000 vehicles a day use this section of road.

Detours:
-- Westbound traffic will make a right onto Horine Road, a left onto westbound Route 180, a left onto Olive School Road and then back to Point of Rocks Road (Route 464).
-- Eastbound traffic will make a left onto Olive School Road, a right onto Route 180 and a right onto Horine Road, then head back onto Route 464.
