GRANTSVILLE — The Maryland State Highway Administration has begun a project to clean and paint eight bridges in Garrett County.
Most work will occur below the bridges; however, daytime single-lane closures could happen Mondays through Thursdays between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m., and Fridays from 6 a.m. to noon. SHA will provide variable message signs, drums and arrow boards to guide motorists through the work zone. The projects should be completed by fall, weather permitting.
Titan Industries of Baltimore was awarded the $1.2 million contract to work at the following locations.
• State Route 38 over the North Branch of the Potomac River in Kitzmiller.
• Water Street over the Youghiogheny River in Friendsville.
• East and westbound spans of Interstate 68 over Water Street and the Youghiogheny River.
• Frost Road over I-68 near Grantsville.
• U.S. Route 219 over I-68 in Grantsville.
• East and westbound spans of I-68/U.S. 219 over Shade Hollow Road in Grantsville.
