After being closed for nearly 10 months for repairs, the Governor's Bridge Road Bridge is reopening this afternoon, says the Prince George’s County Department of Public Works and Transportation.
The bridge was closed in April 2013 after inspections
deemed it unsafe. The Prince George's County Department of Public
Works and Transportation worked to identify the scope of the problem, and
then to send the repair contract through legal review.
The cost of the repairs was split equally between Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties, since the two counties share ownership of the bridge.
Work on the bridge began on Jan. 6, the county said. Throughout the process, DPW&T worked closely with Anne Arundel County and the contractors to complete the repairs and re-open the bridge.
“We are pleased to bring the Governor’s Bridge Road Bridge back online. Restoring the bridge to service will help enable our citizens to travel more safely and efficiently,” said DPW&T Director Darrell Mobley.
