Old Mill Stream Bridge

Heavy rain delayed completion of the new bridge on State Route 213 over Old Mill Stream Branch in Centreville until the afternoon of Monday, Oct. 21.

EASTON – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration is continuing the closure of State Route 213 (Centreville Road) between Main Street and Little Kidwell Avenue in Centreville through early afternoon Monday, Oct. 21.

Over the weekend, crews successfully moved the new MD 213 Bridge over Old Mill Stream Branch into place. Before the road can be reopened, crews must complete paving and striping at the bridge approaches, work delayed due to heavy rainfall.

The detour route includes Commerce Street, State Route 304 (Railroad Avenue) and U.S. Route 301 (Blue Star Memorial Highway). Drivers traveling south along Route 213 may also use State Route 305 (Hope Road) to Route 301. Local traffic will have access up to the point of the closure.

"MDOT SHA apologizes for the inconvenience and thanks drivers for their patience," an MDOT press release stated. "Drivers are urged to stay alert when approaching the detour and work zone area."
