ICC Project Affects Traffic Between I-95 and Rt. 29

The Intercounty Connector project, much of which has been hidden from view along the right of way set aside for it, is going to bust out in a couple of new spots on its eastern side.

Traffic along sections of Briggs Chaney Road and Old Gunpowder Road will be shifted for up to a year as workers build new bridges to carry traffic over the connector.

Starting tonight at 8 o'clock, traffic on Briggs Chaney Road south of Route 29 near Gentry Ridge Court -- about half way between 29 and 95 -- will be shifted to a temporary road to the east of Briggs Chaney.

Drivers will have the same number of lanes. For bikers and walkers, a temporary path is being built along the west side of the new route, separated from traffic by a guard rail. Briggs Chaney Road bus stops just south of Gentry Ridge Court will stay in place.

Traffic is scheduled to return to the original configuration, with the new bridge, in the middle of next summer.

Next Wednesday, July 29, traffic on Old Gunpowder Road just south of Greencastle Road will be shifted onto a 1,200 foot road to the east of Old Gunpowder until it moved back onto the new bridge late next summer.
