SHA: Road Work Planned on Two Bridges

Posted:
CHESTERTOWN, Md. - The State Highway Administrations is warning drivers to leave some extra time on their commute. Both the Chestertown Drawbridge and Dover Bridge will be getting some routine maintenance beginning on Wednesday, December 10.  


SHA will perform routine maintenance requiring short-term openings of the MD 213 Chestertown Drawbridge over the Chester River on Wednesday, December 10, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. 

Then crews will also perform routine maintenance of the MD 331 Dover Bridge over the Choptank River on Thursday, December 11, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The brief closures of the bridges will last no longer than those needed for an average vessel to pass through the open spans, which vary between five to 15 minutes. Work on each bridge is weather permitting.

SHA's contractor will perform the routine maintenance, which 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.

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