Work Scheduled Starting This Weekend; Flagpersons Will Direct Traffic Across the Bridge
(November 1, 2011)—The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will perform a routine inspection of the MD 4 (Governor Thomas Johnson) Bridge over the Patuxent River the weekends of November 5, 12 and 19.
Crews will work on site Saturday and Sunday between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m., weather permitting. Flagpersons will guide motorists through the single-lane work zone.
In addition to biennial inspections of the entire bridge structure, SHA conducts regular monitoring of the bridge deck (riding surface) and performs maintenance, repairs and upgrades to the bridge as appropriate.
Constructed in 1977, the Thomas Johnson Bridge carries more than 28,000 vehicles each day between Calvert County and St. Marys counties.
