Carroll County government announced Wednesday that the Cape Horn Road bridge has been reopened after replacement work was completed.
In 2018, Finksburg-based Kibler Construction Co. won a $604,971.50 contract to remove the existing steel beam bridge structure on Cape Horn Road at Harvey Gummel Road and replace it with a cast-in-place single cell concrete box culvert.
The work was designed to “reduce maintenance costs and provide a structurally sufficient bridge for many years,” according to a public works document.
“Carroll County appreciates the public’s patience and cooperation with any travel delays or difficulties that this roadway closure and construction project may result in,” a Wednesday bulletin from the county said.
For more information, the bulletin suggested residents contact the Bureau of Engineering at 410-386-2157.
