The East Deer Park Bridge, also known as the Humpback Bridge, in Gaithersburg will be closed to traffic this summer beginning at noon on Monday as it undergoes structural modifications, CSX announced Friday.
Changes will be made to the bridge, which spans the CSX railroad tracks between Gaithersburg and Washington Grove, to allow it to meet current standards, according to a news release. Construction will be handled by CSX and is expected to be completed by Aug. 24.
During the construction, East Deer Park Drive will be closed between Central Avenue and Railroad Street, the release said. The detour signs will direct motorists down Central Avenue to Oakmont Avenue and then to Railroad Street.
Train service will not be disrupted.
