PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Thursday announced a $2.3 million investment to rehabilitate an old bridge in Somerset County. The 54-year-old US 13 Bridge over Kings Creek is listed as one of Maryland's structurally deficient bridges.

The bridge has not seen significant improvements since it was built in 1962. Hogan said his administration is investing in Somerset County, a vital link to local agricultural and manufacturing companies.

"This is just an old bridge, it's 54-years-old and needs to be improved and we're happy to be down here to do it; but there are a number of projects down here in Somerset County we're putting a couple million dollars in to help the local government and help the community,"  Hogan said. 

According to the governor, as a part of his administration's $1.97 billion investment in highway and bridge improvements, the Maryland Department of Transportation will replace the deck of the two-lane US 13 Southbound side of the bridge over Kings Creek.

Construction has already started on the bridge and is expected to be completed by the summer.

State Highway Officials said one lane of traffic will remain open during construction.
