Baltimore County announced that it has closed a small bridge on East Joppa Road (over Honeygo Run) in order to make emergency repairs.
The bridge (No.B-0545, located between Snyder Lane and Honeygo Boulevard) will remain closed four months to permit restoration. During the closure, traffic will be detoured to Ebenezer Road and Honeygo Boulevard, but access to Honeygo Elementary School will be permitted. The Joppa Road Bridge, built in the 1940’s and widened in the 1960’s, is a two-lane span. Its construction is concrete slab; its length is 16 feet.
Councilman David Marks released a statement about the closure.
“The condition of this bridge was known by County engineers since the fall,” Mark said.
“I have notified the Perry Hall Improvement Association, the police and Honeygo Elementary School, none of which had received advance notice.
Please use caution and be respectful of the neighborhoods now receiving more traffic.”
