Pr. George's bridge work to begin

A year-long, $5 million project to widen and rehabilitate the bridge that carries Kenilworth Avenue over the Capital Beltway in Prince George's County will get underway before month's end, the Maryland Highway Administration announced Monday.

The road surface will be replaced and other improvements will include reconstructing a half mile of the approaching roadway on MD 201, and repairing, cleaning and painting the existing structural steel and median landscaping. The existing structure was built in 1963 and carries an average of 35,000 vehicles a day.

The SHA said traffic will be maintained in two through lanes on both sides of 201 by utilizing an existing lane and one shoulder. In addition, there may be single-lane closures along both directions of 201 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and overnight closures Sunday through Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
