SHA Prepares for Bridge Work With Public Meeting

Curious about SHA's plans for the Route 140 bridge? Find out all about the project at a meeting next week.

The State Highway Administration (SHA) is planning some major work on the MD Route 140 Bridge at the Carroll/Baltimore County line next year. 

Want to know what’s going on – and what it will mean to you?

The bridge is being resurfaced; steel support beams will be replaced, and the shoulder will be widened, according to a statement released by the SHA. The construction is set to begin in early spring of next year.

During the construction, traffic on the bridge will be reduced from four to three lanes, according to SHA. One of the lanes will take traffic toward Baltimore during the morning commute and back into Westminster during the evening commute and weekends. 

SHA is hosting a public meeting where the public can learn more about the project design, schedule and what to expect during construction:

Tuesday, May 21, 6 – 7 p.m. Sandymount Elementary School, Gymnasium
2222 Old Westminster Pike, Finksburg. 

At the meeting there will be displays that lay out the lane changes for each phase. SHA representatives will be on hand to answer questions. There will be a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m.

To learn more about the project, visit the project page online or contact Heather Keels, SHA district community liaison at 301-624-8131, 800-635-5119, or via email at hkeels@sha.state.md.us.
