Closure Required to Replace Signal Pole and Concrete Foundation on Median at MD 158 (Bethlehem Boulevard) / Wharf Road Intersection at Tradepoint Atlantic 

(June 2, 2023) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration and Tradepoint Atlantic will temporarily close and detour Wharf Road (MD 151B) between MD 158 (Bethlehem Boulevard) and the ramp to MD 151 (Sparrows Point Boulevard) 24 hours a day from 9 a.m. Monday, June 5, to 5 a.m. Monday, June 12, weather permitting. 

The road reopened June 20.​

This temporary road closure will allow a Tradepoint Atlantic contractor to replace a traffic signal pole and concrete foundation in the median of MD 158 at Wharf Road. The signal controls traffic movements on MD 158 and Wharf Road. Tradepoint Atlantic and its contractor, R.E. Pierson of Pilesgrove, N.J., are performing improvements along eastbound MD 158 as part of an ongoing site development plan. MD 158 remains opens during construction work. 

Motorists traveling from MD 158 to Tradepoint Atlantic will be directed to southbound MD 151 (North Point Boulevard/Sparrows Point Boulevard) to reach access points on Tin Mill Boulevard and Tradepoint Avenue, and other destinations south.    

The section of southbound Wharf Road between the ramp and the MD 151 bridge over Wharf Road remains closed as part of construction for the State Highway Administration’s bridge replacement project. The MD 151 bridge over Wharf Road will remain open, with one lane open in each direction. Wharf Road under the MD 151 bridge remains closed during construction.  

Weather permitting, the bridge replacement project is expected to be completed by spring 2024. Additional information on the project can be found here​.  

The State Highway Administration understands lane closures can be an inconvenience, but the work is necessary to maintain the transportation system for all. Motorists are asked to stay alert and be patient as they pass through the work zone. 

​Motorists in need may dial #77 on their mobile devices for roadside assistance.​
