Wilson Bridge Construction Plan
After my Live Online session Monday, John Undeland of the Wilson Bridge Project sent me a note to correct statement about when all the work will be completed. Here's what he said:
"The project is on schedule to finish in 2011, not 2012. Completion dates are as follows:
-- 2008: 2nd new bridge, I-295 Interchange, MD 210 Interchange
-- 2009: US Route 1 Interchange
-- 2011: Telegraph Road Interchange
"These are the finish dates, and parts of these large interchange projects will come on line before the end. For example, the Route 1 ramps to the bridge have been opened for some time now. "
John also noted my gaffe in refering to them as "intersections," rather than interchanges. That made them sound smaller than the mammoth works they are. But he also was thinking of the technical points:
"Interchange" connotes grade-separated confluence of roads as opposed to "intersections," which connotes at-grade confluence, he said.
