bridge inspection

(Nov. 13, 2020) The inspections on the Route 90 bridge is delayed because of rain on Wednesday and Thursday, according to the Maryland State Highway Administration. 

Bob Rager, the district community liaison for the administration, said that the new plan is to add next Thursday, Nov. 19 and Friday, Nov. 20 to the schedule, weather permitting. This will put next Friday as the new estimated completion date for the inspection. 

Inspections were previously estimated to be completed today.

The crew aimed to finish the inspection over the St. Martin’s River bridge on Tuesday and start over the Assawoman Bay bridge before the rain arrived. 

The inspection, which is typically conducted every two years, had a delay last week as well to avoid contributing traffic during early voting and Election Day. 

Rager has said that drivers should be just as cautious as if they were driving around road work, especially since the bridge is a tight work zone.
