Councilman Marks: Construction timeline announced for White Marsh bridge



WHITE MARSH, MD—Fifth District Councilman David Marks on Tuesday provided the following update regarding construction on a bridge in the White Marsh area:

“Construction of the Mohrs Lane Bridge has been a priority for mine since being elected to serve the White Marsh area.

“The original bridge was closed in 2007 due to structural deficiency, and it was removed in 2011. Since then, the county has been designing a replacement and negotiating with the impacted railroad company, a tedious process due to wetlands.

“The new bridge will consist of three 12-foot lanes with two 8-foot shoulders. Improvements to Mohrs Lane will extend for about 950 linear feet towards Philadelphia Road along the western approach, and 300 linear feet towards Pulaski Highway along the eastern approach. The project will not require a detour as Mohrs Lane has been closed since 2007, but once reopened, this route will significantly improve mobility in the White Marsh area,

“The county anticipates completing the design, right-of-way acquisition, environmental clearances, and advertising for construction in late 2024 or early 2025. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2025, with a completion date of 2027.

“I would like to thank County Executive Olszewski and the Department of Public Works and Transportation for their assistance. The Mohrs Lane Bridge, along with the traffic circle at Honeygo Boulevard and Cross Road, are two significant projects that will greatly improve mobility and quality of life in eastern Baltimore County.”
