Bridge construction is under way on Frederick City’s continuing Monocacy Boulevard project.
More than 100 sections of concrete are being assembled to create a bridge that will extend Monocacy Boulevard north from Hughes Ford Road to Gas House Pike, eventually connecting to the Schifferstadt Boulevard cul-de-sac.
Bridge construction is expected to be completed in the summer of 2012. The city will then upgrade Gas House Pike from where the bridge ends to east of the Monocacy River.
The three-arch, 285-foot-long bridge over Carroll Creek and its flood plain will be the longest in the city, according to transportation planner Tim Davis.
