County Executive Steve Schuh Cuts Ribbon on New Chesterfield Road Bridge $1.4 Million Project Completed On Time and Under Budget
Annapolis, MD (March 28, 2017) –County Executive Steve Schuh, along with other county officials, today cut the ribbon on the new, $1.4 million Chesterfield Road Bridge in Annapolis.
“Every day we are making real, substantial improvements to our county road network,” said Schuh. “This important bridge replacement will improve the quality of life and commute for our citizens.”
The new Chesterfield Road Bridge spans Bacon Ridge Branch. The bridge runs approximately 30 feet along Chesterfield Road that connects Crownsville Road and St. Stephen Church Road in the Annapolis area.
The replacement bridge was widened approximately 8 feet, increasing the travel lane and shoulder width for vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists. The replacement also includes a new foundation and superstructure. Some minor roadway approach realignment was also provided for a smoother transition for drivers crossing Bacon Ridge Branch.
The total project cost was approximately $1.4 million and the construction was completed by Rustler Construction, Inc. The project came in under budget and ahead of schedule.
The bridge replacement was made possible through the JumpStart Anne Arundel capital project funding program. Enacted in 2015, the capital plan embraces a 30-year bond financing option. This reform has allowed Anne Arundel County to expand its capital funding program and make critical school, public safety, road, and quality of life infrastructure improvements from Brooklyn Park to Pasadena to Annapolis to Odenton.
