Work On Route 32 Bridge Means Detours For Drivers

November 03, 1991|By Staff report

Construction on a new eastbound Route 32 bridge across the Baltimore-Washington Parkway should begin next week, forcing some motorists todetour around the intersection.

The bridge is part of Gov. William Donald Schaefer's transportation package, financed by motor vehiclefee increases approved by the General Assembly last June. Workers will begin building new ramps to improve access to the parkway as well.

"It's going to take care of a lot of that left-turn movement off 32," said State Highway Administration spokesman Doug Rose.

For about five months, northbound motorists on the parkway who want to headwest on Route 32 should take the eastbound exit, then use the left-turn median crossing to turn around.

For three months, westbound Route 32 motorists who want to head north on the parkway will use the left median crossing to take the ramp to the parkway on the eastbound side.
