Ridge Pike to be Reduced to One Lane Overnight February 8 for Bridge Demolition

The Montgomery County Commissioners announced today that Ridge Pike will be reduced to a single lane with flaggers between Belvoir Road and Carland Road on Thursday, February 8, from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for demolition of the northern deck of the Norfolk Southern Spur Bridge.

The single-lane pattern is necessary so the contractor can safely demolish the bridge using large construction equipment to protect the railroad tracks from falling debris.

In case of inclement weather or any other reason work cannot take place on February 8, the contractor will demolish the bridge on February 9 within the same time constraints.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time for travel through the work area or use an alternate route.
