Tri-County Area Set for Maintenance Repairs on Five Bridges
Motorists on the Eastern Shore should get ready for work on five bridges in Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester Counties beginning this Friday.
Work crews will be setting up this weekend for cleaning and painting the bridges.
The Maryland State Highway Administration says it does not anticipate any lane closures or detours but says the staging areas for the maintenance will be set up on the shoulders for each bridge.
Another five bridges will be cleaned and painted later this year for a total cost of just over a million dollars.
