About the Project

This project is repairing and rehabilitating two bridges along ramps from I-495 (Capital Beltway) to the northbound I-395 main lanes. One of the bridges carries over northbound I-495 (Inner Loop) the ramp from southbound I-495 (Outer Loop) to northbound I-395; the other bridge carries over the Norfolk Southern Railroad both the ramp from the Outer Loop to northbound I-395, and the ramp from the Inner Loop to northbound I-395.

Work on the Norfolk Southern Railroad bridge, which was built in 1959, includes:

  • Replacing the concrete deck,
  • Repairing the pre-stressed concrete beams, concrete piers and abutments
  • Paving the approach to the bridge
  • Replacing bearings

Work on the bridge (built in 1975) over the Inner Loop includes:

  • Resurfacing the concrete deck
  • Repairing the concrete piers and abutments
  • Repainting steel beams
  • Replacing bearings
  • Removing or replacing joints

Estimated Costs
Preliminary engineering: $800,000
Construction: $6.7 million
Total: $7.5 million

Traffic Impacts

At least one lane of the ramp will be open at all times. Drivers are asked to be cautious when driving through the work zone.
