What are those workers on the Bay Bridge doing?

STEVENSVILLE, Md. — Cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge this summer and you might see workers hanging off the side, or on platforms underneath the roadbed. But don’t be alarmed — there’s nothing wrong with the structure.

“It’s an older bridge, so we have to continue to maintain it,” said Maryland’s’ Deputy Secretary of Transportation Jim Ports. “It’s all regular, rehab maintenance.”

All Maryland bridges are, or will be, getting attention as part of a six-year safety and restoration plan.

On the Bay Bridge, brackets are being changed on the outsides of some trusses, suspension wire work is underway, and later there will be some painting from platforms under the bridge.

They have done the same inspections every year. Nothing new just tax payers money going out the door while they hold up traffic

What an ignorant statement... but you would be the first to bitch if they didn't inspect or maintain it and your family were injured as a result.

I'm glad they are keeping an eye on it for numerous reasons.

Dittos 6:22 and 6:35. Ignorance breeds ignorance and to think, they multiply.
