Routine Maintenance to be Peformed on Dover Bridge, Chester River Bridge

Posted:

EASTON, Md.- The Maryland State Highway Administration says it will perform routine maintenance requiring short-term openings of the MD 331 Dover Bridge over the Choptank River on Monday, April 28, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., weather permitting. The SHA will also perform routine maintenance on the MD 213 Chestertown Drawbridge over the Chester River on Wednesday, April 30, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., weather permitting.

Motorists can expect brief closures of each bridge that will last no longer than those needed for an average vessel to pass through the open swing span.

SHA’s contractor, Covington Machine and Welding, Inc. of Annapolis, will perform the inspection and maintenance. The routine maintenance includes: greasing the bridge locks, testing the opening and closing of the bridge swing span, raising and lowering the traffic gates, checking traffic and navigational lights and checking hydraulic oil levels for bridge motors.

If inclement weather prevents the work as originally planned, the SHA said it will be rescheduled for the earliest possible weekday date that weather permits.

Anyone with questions about the project may contact the SHA District 2 Office at 1-800-637-9740.
