As first reported on Construction Equipment Guide:

The Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration (SHA) has reported that a bridge replacement project in Boonsboro, which is in Washington County, is well under way and now in the construction phase.

The project involves a bridge replacement on I-70 over Crystal Falls Drive. The bridges are safe for the traveling public, but the driving surface (superstructures) are nearing the end of their useful service life. Both the eastbound and westbound bridges east of Hagerstown are being replaced.

The total cost of the project is $22.3 million and no special funds were used.

The prime contractor is Triton Construction Inc. of St. Albans, W. Va., with Justin Koers as the project manager. The SHA project manager is Jeffrey Foreman.

The project began on June 27, 2022, and the anticipated completion date is summer of 2025.

According to SHA, the full scope of the project requires the replacement of the Dual Bridges on I-70 over Crystal Falls Drive. A temporary roadway and bridge were constructed along both east and westbound directions for the purpose of maintaining traffic. This includes an eastbound temporary retaining wall along I-70. The project also includes removal of the existing bridges and the construction of new single-span steel girder bridges along both east and westbound spans of I-70.
