(6/1) The Frederick County Office of Transportation Engineering announced that Roddy Road will be closed at the covered bridge over Roddy Creek starting on or about June 3. This will allow the contractor, Kinsley Construction, to complete rehabilitation work on the bridge.
Rehabilitation work to the covered bridge is scheduled to last approximately 10 working days, weather permitting. The work is to include a fire retardant being applied to the interior of the existing structure, installing guardrail, installing a fire alarm system, and adding instream scour protection.
A detour route will be in place during the road closure. The detour will utilize Roddy Road, Roddy Creek Road, Albert Staub Road, Emmittsburg Road, and Eyler Road. Department staff has notified emergency personnel and school officials.
