On, or near Wednesday, September 23, 2020, as part of MDOT SHA Project BA8605280, the Six M Company will begin to alert the public of an upcoming project to replace three bridges along MD 151 at the Wharf Road Interchange in Baltimore County.

Wharf Road will be closed between Bethlehem Boulevard and Sparrows Point Boulevard.

Scheduled to be completed in 2023, this project will be constructed in two stages and will require a series of detours. The bridges scheduled to be replaced are the northern bridge, the middle ramp bridge, and the southern bridge.

A full southbound detour will be in effect along Wharf Road for the duration of the project for crews to safely access all three bridges, which will affect current eastbound LocalLink 63 routing to Tradepoint Atlantic Amazon from Tradepoint Atlantic Shipyard.

A temporary three-month northbound detour will also be implemented along Wharf Road below the southern bridge during each stage of construction to perform pile driving and other pier construction activities, which will affect current westbound LocalLink 63 routing
from Tradepoint Atlantic Under Armour to Hopkins Bayview--Downtown.
