Description

This project provides for the replacement of the existing Brink Road Bridge over Great Seneca Creek. The existing bridge, built in 1972, is a one span 58'-3" steel beam with an asphalt filled corrugated metal deck structure carrying a 23'-6" clear roadway with W-beam guardrail on each side. The proposed replacement bridge includes a one span 58' prestressed NEXT beam structure with a 34'-0" clear roadway width. The project includes 400-feet of approach roadway work west of the bridge to reduce flooding frequency and improvements to the intersection with Wightman Road approximately 20' east of the bridge. In addition, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) Seneca Creek Green hiker-biker trail crossing will be improved at the intersection. The new bridge will carry two lanes of traffic with two 11' travel lanes and 6' wide shoulders for a clear roadway width of 34'.

Capacity

The roadway Average Daily Traffic (ADT) is approximately 12,000 and the roadway capacity will not change as a result of this project.

Estimated Schedule

The design of the project is expected to be completed in Spring 2024. Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2025 and be completed in the winter of 2025. The bridge will be closed to traffic from June 2025 to August 2025.

Justification

The proposed replacement work is necessary to provide a safe roadway condition for the travelling public. The 2020 bridge inspection report for Bridge No. M-0064 indicates that the bridge steel beams are in poor condition with areas of 100 percent section loss. As a result, the bridge is inspected on a 12-month frequency. The bridge is functionally obsolete with a clear roadway width of 24' and carries approximately 12,000 vehicles per day. The bridge is closed two to three times a year due to flooding of the Great Seneca Creek. The project will reduce the flooding frequency to once every five years.
