Councilman David Marks gave an update on the Mohrs Lane Bridge project, which has been closed since 2007. Mohrs Lane was a one lane bridge that connected Philadelphia Road to Pulaski Highway in Middle River.
“The Mohrs Lane bridge has been a very challenging project, largely due to wetlands and the need to work with CSX. I reported last fall that construction was set to finally begin this year – here is an update from the Baltimore County Department Of Public Works,” Marks.
Here is a statement from Baltimore County Department Of Public Works
“Yes this is a very long term project. We met internally last week to work through the property acquisition logistics and have a path forward with a plan to advertise Construction at the end of April 2023.
The project was 95% designed when CSX Railroad reviewed and had issues with the drainage design (not the bridge design), this has required a redesign on drainage. CSX will not allow any stormwater drainage to cross their tracks/enter their property. The new design reroutes the stormwater and requires additional property acquisition. Plans are being finalized and Real-Estate Plats being prepared so property acquisition can move forward.”<
