The Maryland State Highway Administration has announced a temporary closure of the Bear Creek drawbridge at Peninsula Expressway to marine traffic beginning Jan. 25.
The span will close to boaters so that repairs can be made to the bridge tender house, according to a statement from the highways administration.
Weather permitting, the drawbridge will be in full operation to allow boaters to pass until Jan. 25.
The work is expected to take about two weeks to complete, according to administration spokesman Charlie Gischlar.
SHA has notified the U.S. Coast Guard of the temporary closure.
