Dicus Mill Road bridge to be closed through Jan. 2

Anne Arundel County officials expect to close the one-lane Dicus Mill Road Bridge from today through Jan. 2 for repair work.

Crews will replace sections of the bridge deck that have been covered with steel plates. The project for the Severn River bridge is estimated to cost $84,000.

Motorists who normally use Dicus Mill Road to access Gambrills Road, Benfield Road or Interstate 97 will be required to use Route 3, Route 175 or Route 32.
