Jumpers Hole Road closed for bridge maintenance Work expected to take 2 weeks

August 19, 1993

Jumpers Hole Road between Ritchie Highway and Mountain Road in Pasadena will be closed for two weeks while state highway crews perform routine maintenance on the bridge that carries state Route 100 over the road.

The closure went into effect yesterday. The road is scheduled to be reopened Sept. 1, according to the State Highway Administration.

A spokeswoman for the agency said the work is part of scheduled maintenance on the bridge. "As far as we know, nothing is wrong," she said.

Residents or people patronizing businesses on Jumpers Hole Road will be permitted to drive as far as the bridge, the SHA says, but through traffic will not be allowed. Drivers using state Route 100 are being advised to take alternate routes to avoid delays.

Single-lane closures on westbound Route 100 between state Route 10 and the Jumpers Hole Road bridge will begin at 9 a.m. tomorrow and continue through the weekend. All lanes are scheduled to reopen Monday at 6 a.m.

Motorists traveling west on Route 100 should use Mountain Road -- Route 177 -- as an alternate. Those driving north on Jumpers Hole Road should use Ritchie Highway to Mountain Road, and those planning to travel south on Jumpers Hole are advised to continue west on Mountain Road to Ritchie Highway.

Covington Machine and Welding Co. of Annapolis has been awarded the $85,000 contract for the work.
