(August 28, 2014) - The State Highway Administration (SHA) will be applying an epoxy coating to both approaches of the Dover Bridge (MD 331) that crosses the Choptank River at the Talbot/Caroline County line. Weather permitting the work will take place the week of September 2nd, daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Motorists should expect a single lane closure guided by a flag person on the Dover Bridge.

Earlier this summer, SHA patched the bridge approaches with concrete. The epoxy work is the next phase of repairs to seal the road surface on the approaches to the bridge. The epoxy repairs are anticipated to cost $10,000 and will be done by Concrete General, Inc., of Gaithersburg.

If inclement weather prevents the work as originally planned, it will be rescheduled for the earliest possible weekday date that weather permits. Anyone with questions about the project may contact the SHA District 2 Office at 1-800-637-9740.

As crews strive to keep work zones safe, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving behavior to help prevent crashes. Stay alert – look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Safer Driving. Safer Work Zones. For everyone!
