I-895 Over Patapsco River Flats Superstructure Replacement Project Tour

The CMAA Baltimore Chapter is hosting a tour of the Maryland Transportation Authority's (MDTA) $48.5 million bridge deck and superstructure replacement project of the bridge carrying I-895 over the Patapsco River Flats. This project, constructed by McLean Contracting Company, commenced in July 2016 and is scheduled to be completed by August 2019. The Vulcan Materials Company is producing the new bridge deck concrete using a mixture consisting of 'lightweight' coarse and fine aggregates. This structural lightweight concrete will reduce the dead load on the substructure and reduce the number of bridge joints resulting in a smoother riding surface. I-895 traffic has been reduced to two-way traffic, one lane in each direction, for the duration of the project.

Tour Guides will be:
Anthony Tabasco - MDTA Area Engineer
Daniel Hayes - MDTA Project Engineer

Participation will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
