Construction FAQ

1. What time of year can construction take place?

Construction will take place between May 1 and September 30. The timing for construction will be based on the stream designation assigned by Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR). This project is located in the Bynum Run watershed which is a designated trout stream with in-stream construction restrictions from October 1st through April 30th. 

2. When will construction start? 

Construction can start approximately 3 months after the design is completed. This allows for the project to be advertised for bids from pre-qualified contractors who specialize in stream restoration. Larger counties and municipalities across Maryland and within the region are designing and constructing similar projects. It is becoming more and more evident the lack of contractors to complete this type of work. As a result, there is the potential to award projects but have delayed starts to accommodate constructor's schedules. 

3. How long will it take to complete construction?

Approximately 6 months.
