Cleaning and Painting project begins on Harry Nice Bridge

Overnight Flagging Operations Start On Or About April 15

The MD Transportation Authority (MDTA) announces a $13.7 million cleaning, painting and repair project for the Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge (US 301), which connects Charles County, Md., and King George County, Va., across the Potomac River. This preservation project, funded completely by toll revenue, is part of the MDTA’s commitment to preserving and maintaining the State’s aging toll bridges, tunnels and highways.

Beginning on or about April 15, the Nice Bridge will be reduced to one lane with flagging operations alternating northbound and southbound traffic during the following overnight off-peak hours: Sunday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. the following morning and Friday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning.


Daytime flagging operations are now taking place at the Nice Bridge for annual inspections. Once inspections are complete, daytime flagging operations will begin for
this project during the following off-peak hours: Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Trucks greater than 10-feet wide will not be permitted to cross the bridge during flagging operations. Every effort will be made to cross all vehicles exceeding 10-feet
from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and from 3:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Drivers of vehicles exceeding the width restriction must call 301-259-4444 to obtain approval and schedule an escort. Calls must be made one hour prior to arrival at the bridge and will only be accepted between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.


Construction is expected to last approximately two years. Blastech Enterprises, Inc., of Baltimore will clean/paint and repair portions of the existing structural steel. Work
also includes repairing and sealing the concrete bridge deck and replacing the catwalk and ladder system under the bridge’s main span.


Portable and overhead electronic message signs will display travel information. For information on the MDTA’s other facility preservation projects, or to view real-time
traffic camera images on MDTA roadways, visit mdta.maryland.gov. For statewide travel conditions, visit MD511.ORG or call 511.
