Motorists in Worcester County will encounter a detour for replacement of the Bayside Road Bridge, on the bay east of Snow Hill.
The current timber-beam bridge is being closed as of Monday.
Local detour routes will add a few minutes to the commute. Worcester County Public Works says the project is expected to take about six months to complete.
The following detour was released by WCPW:
Paw Paw Creek Road to Stagg Road is approximately 1.882 miles and two minutes and 30 seconds; Stagg Road to Bayside Road is approximately 1.317 miles and two minutes; Bayside Road to Equestrian Shores is approximately 1.265 miles and two minutes; and Bayside Road to Paw Paw Creek is approximately 1.527 miles and two minutes and 30 seconds.
