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.
