Repair work on the Chesapeake City Bridge MD route 213 is anticipated to be complete on time mid-November 2016.

Corcon Inc., an Ohio firm, was awarded the $6.8 million contract to sandblast, repair and repaint pedestrian railings and replace safety fencing.

The temporary traffic signals have been removed and Corcon is closing one lane using flaggers between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. to install the fence and close out punchlist items.

Outside of our working hours, both lanes of the bridge will be fully opened for two-way traffic.

The Chesapeake City Bridge was built in 1948 connecting the two sides of the city. The main span is 540 feet long and the overall length of the bridge is 3,954 feet.
