Description

This project provides for the rehabilitation of the existing Brighton Dam Road Bridge No. M-0229 over Brighton Dam of Triadelphia Reservoir. This 602-foot long 15-span bridge, which is supported by Brighton Dam, is in need of repairs to the parapets, bridge deck joints, prestressed concrete beams, abutment backwalls, street lights, and approach roadways and sidewalks to enhance the safety of the traveling public and the integrity of the dam. The existing storm inlets on the approach roadways at both ends of the bridge will be improved as needed.

Justification

This bridge, reconstructed in 1999, requires repairs to the 1,002-foot long west parapets, 642-foot long east parapets, sixteen bridge deck joints, prestressed concrete beams, abutment backwalls, street lights, and approach roadways and sidewalks. The parapets have severe concrete spalling at many parapet joints. Prestressed concrete beams and abutment backwalls have spalling and cracking. The approach roadways and sidewalks have settlement at both ends of the bridge. The bridge deck joints have failed, allowing water and deicing chemicals to flow through the bridge deck which resulted in corrosion and deterioration to the mechanized equipment for the dam operations. Some street lights and pole supports are damaged. The improvement of storm inlets was requested by WSSC to minimize storm runoff entering into the bridge deck surface from the approach roadways.

Other

The 2005 Olney Master Plan designates Brighton Dam Road as Arterial Road (A-15) with a minimum right-of-way of 80 feet. The December 2018 Montgomery County Bicycle Master Plan recommends bikeable shoulders. The deterioration of the bridge was identified through the County's 2019 biennial inspection program. The bridge rehabilitation was requested by WSSC to protect the newly reconstructed dam operation equipment. Funding for this project will be shared equally between Montgomery County, Howard County and WSSC in accordance with the February 16, 2021 Design and Construction Agreement. The funding shown as "Intergovernmental" is from Howard County and WSSC for their share of the project cost.
