5/29/2012Major Construction Project Beginning on Motter Avenue/Opossumtown Pike
SHA, in partnership with the City of Frederick, is beginning a major construction project on the Motter Avenue/ Opossumtown Pike Bridge over US 15, using federal, state and local funding.

The bridge will remain open to traffic throughout the project, but lanes will be shifted, and temporary lane closures may occur during off-peak hours. To promote work zone safety, automated speed enforcement will be in place on US 15.

To ensure continued safe access for the many pedestrians who use this route, including students at nearby Governor Thomas Johnson High School and Frederick Community College, SHA will construct a temporary pedestrian bridge.

Project completion is anticipated by fall 2014, weather permitting.
