Route V Bridge Over Doxie Creek Bridge Replacement Project Milestones
Construction of the new Route V bridge over Doxie Creek is underway. Route V is closed at the bridge location for 60 days. There are multiple alternate routes around the closure (please see detour map in project displays/detour map menu below on this page).
The project will replace the Howard County Route V bridge over Doxies Creek northeast of Glasgow. The new bridge will be six feet wider, will have additional guardrail on the bridge ends, and will increase safety on the bridge.
Howard County Route V is CLOSED at the bridge location for 60 days as of Monday, Sept. 10. There are multiple alternate routes for motorists to use to drive around the work area (please see detour map in project displays/detour map menu to the right on this page).
The total cost of the project is approximately $600,000.
Why is this work necessary?
The existing Route V Doxies Creek Bridge was built in 1947 and is 70 years old. The condition of the bridge has deteriorated and has reached a point where replacement is necessary.
