Thank you, Ho­gan, for new Nice bridge

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

I am writ­ing in re­gard to your piece on Gov. Larry Ho­gan’s plan for con­struc­tion of a new Gov. Harry W. Nice Memo­rial Bridge.

As a life­time res­i­dent of South­ern Mary­land, I can say whole­heart­edly that this new bridge will be a much wel­come change. I have made the trip across the cur­rent bridge to King Ge­orge, Va., on mul­ti­ple oc­ca­sions and each time it has been an ex­er­cise in pa­tience. From the fre­quent conges­tion to the nar­row lanes, the cur­rent bridge has tested my com- po­sure more times than not. Worse yet have been the empty prom­ises from lo­cal politi­cians to fix the prob­lems plagu­ing the bridge and their fail­ure to progress any fur­ther than talk­ing about it.

Ku­dos to Gov­er­nor Ho­gan for put­ting peo­ple be­fore pol­i­tics and tak­ing the ini­tia­tive to not only ce­ment a plan for a new bridge’s con­struc­tion, but also set­ting a com­ple­tion date a full decade ear­lier than an­tic­i­pated.
