SHA Uses Innovative "Zipper" Barrier
As part of the MD 140 Bridge reconstruction at the Baltimore - Carroll county line, SHA needs to temporarily reduce the travel lanes across the bridge from four to three. To avoid excessive traffic back-ups, SHA is using a movable barrier and signal system to provide a reversible lane. By using a “zipper-like” barrier, SHA can better accommodate the most-heavily traveled direction of traffic and enhance safety in a limited size work zone.

Get Involved - Join Us At A Public Meeting
