Old Georgetown Bridge Project On Schedule


  The 90-foot pedestrian bridge over Old Georgetown Road in downtown Bethesda has been closed since April, when the Montgomery County Department of Transportation sealed off the entrance at Bethesda Place, boarded up the structure and put a sheet over it for eight months of rehabilitation work. The first phase of the project, the cleaning and priming of the bridge, is done and the rest is on schedule, according to a Montgomery County spokesperson. Crews are now repairing the steel members, connections and joints that were corroded from poor drainage and, according to Bethesda Chevy Chase Regional Services Center Director Ken Hartman in an April interview with Bethesda Patch, droppings from pigeons roosting in the cladding. That work is expected to finish next week. Final cleaning, priming and painting of the bridge will start within the next few weeks.
