The Harford Road Bridge contractor has begun demolishing activities for the existing bridge. Pavement across the new bridge has been removed, uncovering existing trolley tracks that once ran down Harford Road. The existing trolley tracks have been removed, along with existing sidewalk and bridge parapet. Retaining walls on the south end of the bridge have been demolished as well.
Demolition of the bridge will continue over the next eight weeks where various components of the bridge will come down systematically. Fill within the bridge will be excavated and removed, leaving the bridge concrete walls and arch exposed. Walls will then be removed, followed by the arches. A demolition shield has been installed over the creek to protect debris from entering the waterway.
Other work performed around the site includes installation of stormwater drainage piping, erosion and sediment control measures, and site security fencing.
