Central Avenue Bridge Reopens

Commuters from Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties can end three and a half months of detours around a bridge over the Patuxent River. The Maryland State Highway Administration announced the reopening of the Central Avenue span today.

Cleanup work is going to continue for several weeks, the SHA said in a statement, but the rebuilt bridge is open to traffic. Also, there will be some single lane closures between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. for about a week.

The bridge, built in 1925, was carrying 11,000 vehicles a day when the state shut it down for extensive repairs that included replacement of corroded steel plates, installation of a new concrete deck and repainting. The project cost $3 million.
