The Maryland State Highway Administration advises motorists using westbound Interstate 68 through Cumberland to expect delays Thursday due to emergency repairs to the bridges over Kelly Road and Patterson Avenue. The two left lanes will be closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., reducing westbound traffic to one lane.
The bridges remain safe for traffic, but the lane closures are necessary to address immediate needs related to concrete repairs on the driving surfaces. More extensive work on the two bridges is scheduled to take place next year.
Questions should be directed to SHA’s District 6 office at 301-729-8400 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
