The Worcester County Department of Public Works is implementing plans to replace Five Mile Branch Road bridge starting November 14, 2016. Fi This bridge was scheduled to be replaced after earning unsatisfactory bridge sufficiency ratings during the county’s annual bridge inspection program. This bridge replacement project is eligible for federal funding under the Highway Bridge Program.
The three-span, timber-beam Five Mile Branch Road Bridge is located approximately 0.76 miles north of US Rt. 113 and crosses Coonfoot Branch. Access to this bridge will be closed and detour will be in place throughout the course of the project.
The project is expected to take 120 calendar days to complete.
