Nice Bridge Closed (Again)


Harry Nice Bridge Closed Due to Motor Vehicle Accident

The Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge on Route 301 is presently closed to traffic due to a motor vehicle accident involving a motorcycle. The bridge will remain closed until the accident has been cleared. Within the hour, Nice Bridge officials estimate that bridge traffic will resume, initially using a single alternating lane. Motorists traveling in the area should use caution and expect traffic delays. Citizens are encouraged to monitor local news stations for traffic updates.

They didn't bother to mention anything about taking alternate routes this time, did they?

Not that any exist...

No, they didn't. The above statement came from the NDW/Dahlgren Public Affairs desk. Hopefully by now, it's all clear!

And here it is again. From King George Alert:

The Harry Nice Bridge is temporarily shut down down due to a Motor Vehicle Accident.





This was sent about 1:30 PM so hopefully it will be cleared up by rush hour.

Re: Nice Bridge Closed (Again)

I never really knew or cared cause i didn't travel over the Nice bridge to much, but this is sounding almost as bad as the Coleman bridge in Gloucester which I had to deal with for 4 yrs..

UPDATE!

Quote:


Harry Nice Bridge only has one lane passage at this time. North Bound lane on Bridge still closed due to working on the removal of a burned vehicle from crash. Traffic is backed up past Sheetz on North bound lanes of Route 301 at this moment.

Ugh - glad I don't have to travel on that bridge! I hate crossing it as it is when I do go that direction.

Got lucky and missed it this time. Left work early at 1300. Headed to Waldorf and took the Honda in for normal warranty service, etc. Left there between 1530 and 1600.

When I hit the Virginia side of the bridge there was a MD trooper with lights stopped with traffic backed up behind him while another sped across the bridge towards MD. No traffic from MD to VA.

No idea what they were doing, maybe just opened. Must have been about 1630. On another note, what the heck am I doing on FT at 0300 on my day off?

August 10 at 7pm there will be a meeting to discuss bridge issues. It will be at the Newburg VFD. So you'll have to cross the bridge to get there. Good luck...

Nice bridge meeting
