POTOMAC RIVER BRIDGE PROJECT - HOME

Governor Hogan Delivers New Potomac River Crossing

Governor Larry HoganStanding at the base of the 75-year-old Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge, Governor Larry Hogan announced $765 million in funding for construction of a new Potomac River crossing from Charles County, Maryland, to King George County, Virginia. This crossing is vital to the nation's security and to the quality of life of thousands of Marylanders who depend on this bridge daily for work, business, and recreation.

Current Bridge and Conceptual Rendering

With only one, narrow lane in each direction, the existing bridge causes near daily congestion and traffic issues. Routine maintenance and large-scale preservation efforts have significant traffic impacts. The new bridge will be built north of and parallel to the existing 1.7-mile bridge and will include two lanes of traffic in each direction and a barrier-separated bicycle and pedestrian path.
