**UPDATED SCHEDULE** 24/7 SINGLE-LANE CLOSURE ON SOUTHBOUND US 301 APPROACHING NICE/MIDDLETON BRIDGE UNTIL LATE WINTER 2021/22

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
November 15, 2021

 

**UPDATED SCHEDULE**

24/7 SINGLE-LANE CLOSURE ON SOUTHBOUND US 301 APPROACHING NICE/MIDDLETON BRIDGE UNTIL LATE WINTER 2021/22

Travel Off-Peak on Weekends to Minimize Delays 

 

WHAT:  The single southbound lane of the Nice/Middleton Bridge is extended on the approach lanes of southbound US 301 prior to the toll plaza structure. Access to business locations on this stretch of southbound US 301 will be maintained. 

WHEN:  Weather permitting, the 24/7 single-lane closure will remain in effect until approximately late Winter 2021/22. Based on typical historical travels, the best times to travel the Nice/Middleton Bridge on weekends include: 

•    Friday – before 11 a.m. and after 6 p.m.
•    Saturday – before 9 a.m. and after 3 p.m.
•    Sunday – before 12 p.m. and after 4 p.m.

WHY:  Toll Dollars At Work: Crews will be installing foundations for the overhead gantry for future all-electronic tolling collection and new signage approaching the Nice/Middleton Bridge. The  work is part of the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA) project to build a new US 301   bridge to replace the 80-year-old Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial/Senator Thomas “Mac” Middleton Bridge over the Potomac River. The new, wider, four-lane crossing will open to  traffic by early 2023.
