The Harford Road Bridge over Herring Run serves as a main artery for traffic in northeast Baltimore carrying an approximately 22,000 vehicles daily. The replacement structure will be a structurally efficient three-span, prestressed concrete girder bridge that maintains the aesthetics of the original 1911 structure with arch facades. Construction is expected to take 36 months to complete and will include a complete closure of Harford Road between Chesterfield Avenue and Walther Avenue.
The new bridge includes dedicated bike lanes and ADA compliant sidewalks separated by flex posts in both directions. The project also includes the reconstruction of the Herring Run/Greenway Trail adjacent to the bridge, multiple stormwater maintenance facilities and the construction of a pedestrian underpass for a future trail extension.
