Phoenix Road Bridge | December 28, 2023

The original 1922 6-span simply supported steel deck truss bridge on Phoenix Road in Baltimore County, MD went through a rehabilitation process that was completed in 1982.  During the routine biennial bridge inspection in 2009, significant deterioration to the floor beams was found along the exterior of the bridge, resulting in the bridge capacity to be reduced to single-lane traffic controlled by traffic signals at both ends of the bridge.

The demolition of the existing bridge started in 2022 and required Morabito Consultants to analyze overweight construction machinery to prepare sequencing and procedures for a safe demolition. MC is proud to have worked with Gray and Son, Inc. in contributing to the replacement of this important bridge, allowing two-way traffic to resume connecting York and Papermill Road.
