The closing and detour of Md. 464 near Brunswick for a State Highway Administration bridge replacement project has been delayed for nearly two weeks, although the work's completion date remains on schedule.

The detour that had been scheduled to start Monday is now expected to begin July 22 because some material for the project has been late being delivered, SHA spokeswoman Shantee Felix said Tuesday in an email.

The $4 million project to replace the bridge over Little Catoctin Creek will include creating shoulders for cyclists and pedestrians, as well as stabilizing a section of the creek bank.

The detour will use Olive School Road to Md. 180 to Md. 17.

The project includes the installation of a temporary traffic signal at Olive School Road and Md. 180 because of increased traffic.

SHA spokesman Charlie Gischlar said there's been a slight delay in installing the temporary signal.

The project is still expected to be finished by spring 2020, Felix said.

So Jefferson has a bridge closed to the west, a circle being built to the east, and Main Street torn up for a year or more. Fun, fun.
