ANNAPOLIS (Nov. 22, 2016)—Standing at the base of the 75-year-old Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge, Governor Larry Hogan on Monday announced $765 million in funding for construction of a new Potomac River crossing from Charles County, Maryland, to King George County, Virginia. This crossing is vital to the nation’s security and to the quality of life of thousands of Marylanders who depend on this bridge daily for work, business, and recreation. The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) anticipates advertising a design-build contract for the new bridge in 2018, starting construction in 2020, and opening a new, wider, and safer bridge in 2023 seven years sooner than the plan legislatively mandated this past session through Senate Bill 907. Currently, there are 1,073 transportation projects, totaling nearly $8 billion dollars, under construction across the state a record amount for the state of Maryland.
