Detour Sign

Humpback Bridge Closed (Video)

The East Deer Oak bridge, also known as the Humpback Bridge, which spans the CSX railroad tracks between the city of Gaithersburg and the town of Washington Grove, is closed to traffic for the next few weeks.

During construction to modify the bridge, East Deer Park Drive will be closed between Central Avenue and Railroad Street. The detour route takes motorists down Central Avenue to Oakmont Avenue and then to Railroad Street. Detour signs have been installed to guide motorists around the construction area.

Construction is expected to be complete by August 24 and train service will not be disrupted by the work.
