New Technologies Utilized in Bridge Replacement Project

 

Allegany County is the site of the first bridge in the State of Maryland which utilizes two emerging technologies: Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil and Integrated Bridge System (GRS-IBS), a hybrid composite superstructure. A new, 2 lane, 27 foot long bridge is now under construction on Potomac Hollow Road over Moores Run, replacing an existing structurally deficient bridge. The Allegany County Department of Public Works is administering this project. The bridge was designed by WBCM Construction Services, LLC, Baltimore, and now is under construction by Carl Belt, Inc. of Allegany County.According to Adam Patterson, P.E., County Engineer, Allegany County Department of Public Works, an informational workshop to showcase the bridge during the construction phase will be held on Thursday, July 17, 2014 for engineers and other construction industry personnel. Interested individuals are to pre-register for this training session with the Maryland Transportation Technology Center by calling Carly Keane at 240-304-9627. Read More


STORM DAMAGES

Allegany County sustained significant damages due to torrential rainfall and severe flash flooding on June 12, 2014. Governor O’Malley declared a State of Emergency. After two weeks Allegany County’s estimate of damages reached $1,711,324 and this is believed to be a conservative figure. Allegany County was denied any public assistance from the Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). Now, the County Commissioners are asking for reconsideration for public assistance from MEMA and are also asking MEMA to pursue public assistance from FEMA, the counterpart federal agency.

FY 2015 Water and Sewer Rates

Utilities Division Chief Mark W. Yoder, P.E., presented background information and proposed FY 2015 water and sewer rates to the Allegany County Commissioners at the public work session on May 15, 2014. Yoder noted that the County continues to strive to keep the rate increases as low as possible while still meeting our operational needs. These new rates, however, do not keep pace with our increasing need to renew our aging infrastructure. Read Background Information / View Proposed Rates
