Dover Bridge This crane sits atop the temporary trestle that extends out into the marsh. The trestle features a tram/track for safe movement of materials, and it allows workers to construct the new bridge with minimal environmental impacts.

MD 331 beam transport The first steel beam for the new bridge makes its way from US 301 onto MD 213 near Centreville on January 28. These hauls will range from 145 feet to 165 feet in length and require police escorts. When the beams arrive at the job site a lane closure and flagging operation are necessary on MD 331 to provide room for safe crane operation as the beams are moved to storage and eventually set atop the new bridge piers.
First beam arrives The first of many steel beams is removed from the transport vehicle and placed on the work trestle via a carefully coordinated two-crane lift.
Dover Bridge steel set Steel girders spanning Choptank River have all been set and the new fixed-span bridge now dwarfs the old structure. The new bridge uses a combination of steel and concrete girders. Over the next several months crews will install deck pans and reinforcing steel, and concrete will be pumped onto the new structure to form the bridge deck/riding surface.
