About the Project

The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) is replacing the existing Nice-Middleton Bridge with a new bridge that will:

  • Double the vehicle capacity with four 12-foot-wide lanes, replacing the old bridge’s two 11-foot-wide lanes
  • Improve safety by installing a barrier-separated median between east- and westbound lanes, adding two-foot shoulders and other improvements that meet current safety standards
  • Eliminate lane-shifting safety issues at toll booths by replacing them with all-electronic tolling
  • Enable tall ships to pass beneath its 135-foot clearance

With construction underway (July 2020), the new bridge is scheduled to open in early 2023. Under MDTA’s supervision, the $463 million design-build job is being performed by Skanska, Corman and McLean (SCM), a joint venture comprised of firms with local ties.
