Upcoming Roadway/Bridge Projects:

Replacement of Bohemia Church Road Culverts
This project is the replacement of three existing deteriorated corrugated metal pipe culverts with new reinforced concrete pipes with concrete headwalls and wingwalls, and associated roadway work. Two culverts are located between Christopher Road and Worsell Manor Road, and the third is located approximately 1000 feet west of the intersection with Church Road. The project will be advertised in February/March 2018 with construction beginning in June 2018. Two different detours will be required during construction and the first will implemented after Cecil County Public Schools have recessed for the summer.

Mechanics Valley Road Bridge over CSX Railroad, Bridge No. CE0042
This project is the replacement of an existing prestressed concrete bridge on reinforced concrete foundations over CSX railroad with a new bridge and approach roadway that will safely meet the current and future roadway needs. The project is in the preliminary design phase that will position a new bridge to the west of the existing bridge. Identified as a Federal Funding Project, the County must complete the design in phases and receive Federal approval before moving to semi-final design. Pending future approval and appropriation of funds construction is anticipated to be in Fiscal Year 2020.

Oldfield Point Road Improvements
The project limits are from Old Chestnut Road south to Breon Lane and will include widening roadway, improving horizontal and vertical roadway alignments, drainage improvements, replacement of culverts at Jones Creek and smaller culverts at several other locations. The project is currently in final design and permitting. Property acquisition phase is underway and the County's consultant Property Specialists, JMT, has started at the south end of the project limits and will be moving north in three phases. Presently, JMT is contacting affected property owners between Breon Lane to Tomax Lane.

Current Solid Waste Projects:

Central Landfill Horizontal Expansion
As is typical with landfill facilities, existing disposal capacity is a finite resource and planning for ongoing and increasing disposal demand is required in order to maintain uninterrupted operations to serve the citizens of Cecil County.  Current disposal activity occurs within Cell 4 which has a remaining capacity on the order of 8 to 12 years.  The horizontal expansion project consists of the design and permitting of 80+ acres comprising six (6) new disposal cells which will subsequently be constructed in phases.  The proposed expansion will provide ongoing service for many decades with a total disposal capacity of approximately 16.6 million cubic yards.  Currently, the County has received the required permits for expansion with the 5-phase regulatory permitting process, MDE will issue separate permits for each new cell.

Current Waste Water Projects:

 Harbour View Wastewater Treatment Plant
This project will replace a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) that has exceeded its useful life. It consist of constructing a new WWTP outside of the 100-year floodplain and will incorporate a membrane bioreactor package plant that will treat wastewater to Enhanced Nutrient Removal levels. The WWTP is permitted for 65,000 gpd. It will not serve new development but only the existing houses that are already on sewer and those parcels in the Harbour View development shown as S-1 on the County's Master Water and Sewer plan. The project will improve water quality, eliminate potential public health concerns and help meet the nutrient Total Maximum Daily Load for the Elk River.
Project Manager: Jonathan Pohlman

Port Deposit Wastewater Treatment Plant and Pump Station/Force main/Gravity Effluent Outfall
The project will construct a new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), sewage pumping station, force main and gravity effluent outfall. The WWTP will be capable of treating wastewater to Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR) levels and will replace the existing, fifty-year old WWTP. The new plant will be constructed out of the Susquehanna Flood zone at a higher elevation to eliminate the risk of failure during high water releases from the Conowingo Dam.

It will be designed to be expandable to treat wastewater from future development at the Bainbridge site and for taking mobile home parks off of failed or failing onsite treatment systems.

The new plant will be constructed in phases. The first phase will have a capacity of 150,000 gpd (i.e., the current permitted limit). It will be designed to facilitate expansion up to 900,000 gpd as future need requires.
