Route 90 bridge to Ocean City scheduled to reopen today

November 24, 2009

The Route 90 bridge to Ocean City, closed since mid-October for emergency repairs, will reopen about 10 a.m. today - just in time for Thanksgiving, the State Highway Administration has announced. The bridge, one of two connecting the mainland with the ocean resort, had been expected to remain closed through mid-December. The 38-year-old bridge over Assawoman Bay in Worcester County was closed after inspectors discovered deterioration in a girder on an 85-foot section of the span. While the bridge was being repaired, the U.S. 50 bridge was the only one serving the barrier island.
