Bridge Design

US Route 50 Bridge Over Sinepuxent Bay

Maryland State Highway Administration

Ocean City Maryland is one of the most popular resort areas along the East Coast of the United States.  To access this municipality, motorists must cross one of two bridges, the MD Route 90 structure or the US Route 50 structure, which is a four lane crossing.

In cooperation with the Maryland State Highway Administration Office of Structures, Brudis & Associates, Inc. was responsible for the design of the deck overlay and rehabilitation for the US Route 50 Bridge.

This project required a unique completion schedule to accomodate heavy seasonal traffic.  BAI prepared the bridge sequence of construction to be completed in two separate, accelerated construction stages. This allowed for the bridge to be open to both travel lanes of traffic during the summer months. It also allowed the structure to be used as an emergency evacuation route in the event of hurricanes.
