Lanes to close overnight on Bene­dict bridge Jan. 30-31

Maryland Independent - - News -

The Maryland State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion on Mon­day and Tues­day, Jan. 30 and 31, will be work­ing on the new fender sys­tem on Route 231 (Prince Fred­er­ick Road/Hal­low­ing Point Road) bridge, known as the Bene­dict bridge, over the Patux­ent River.

Due to the na­ture of the work, the bridge will have a one-way flag­ging op­er­a­tion from 9 p.m. to mid­night, ac­cord­ing to a re­lease from the State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Charles County gov­ern­ment. Also, the bridge will be com­pletely closed to traf­fic for up to 30-minute in­ter­vals dur­ing the overnight hours of mid­night to 5 a.m.

Traf­fic will be held on both the Calvert County and Charles County sides of the bridge while the work is per­formed. All work is weather per­mit­ting.

The on­site con­tact per­son, Rick Buck­mas­ter, may be reached any time dur­ing the clos­ing at 410982-3623.

As crews strive to keep work zones safe, each driver needs to ac­tively mod­ify his or her driv­ing be­hav­ior to help pre­vent crashes, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease. Stay alert — look for re­duced speed lim­its, nar­row driv­ing lanes and high­way work­ers. Slow down and don’t fol­low too closely.
