Detour NB Wharf Rd MD151B.jpg

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin removing two bridge decks and detour traffic at MD 151B (Wharf Rd.) as part of the $29 million project to reconstruct three bridges at the MD 151 (North Point Boulevard) and MD 151B (Wharf Road) interchange.

Beginning 9 a.m. this past Sunday, and continuing for approximately two weeks, northbound

Wharf Road at the North Point Boulevard interchange will be closed and traffic will be detoured.

Drivers will be directed to MD 158 (Bethlehem Blvd.) via northbound MD 151.

The interchange reconstruction project includes the replacement of the northern, middle and southern bridges.

During the closure, crews will be removing the decks of the northern bridge, located over Warehouse Rd. and Railroad Line and the middle bridge, located on Wharf Rd. at Sparrows Point Blvd.

The short-term detour of northbound Wharf the interchange is in addition to the long-term southbound Wharf Rd. detour already in effect.

MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our customers. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on driving and, look for reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes.

Drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones.
