ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP/WNAV) - Gov. Larry Hogan says an expansion plan is happening for the Severn River Bridge in Annapolis. The project will add an eastbound lane by shifting the existing median and change the stripes to make seven travel through lanes. Four will be eastbound
and three lanes westbound. Construction will start next week on the eastbound side. Nighttime lane closures will on Tuesday, September 5.
Its supposed to be done before next years Memorial Day weekend. On average, 126,000 vehicles use that route every day and more than 145,000 on a typical summer Friday. The project is expected to cost about 23-million-dollars.
Officials say three lanes of traffic will be maintained during the day in both directions. Work zone signs will be placed in advance of construction. There will be no daytime lane closures.
