New Nice Bridge online presentation begins January 18

New Nice Bridge Project  Online Presentation
The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) is providing an online presentation about the New Nice Bridge Project beginning Thursday, January 18, 2018. The new bridge will replace the current Harry W Nice Memorial Bridge over US 301 between Charles County, MD and King George County, VA. Construction will begin in early 2020, and the new bridge will be open to traffic in 2023.
Visit any time after noon on January 18. 2018. to view the presentation. The presentation will provide a brief summary of the project  including how the MDTA has worked to advance the project beyond the original  study phase, the project schedule, and what you can expect during construction  and after the new bridge opens.
This effort kicks off the public comment period which ends February 20, 2018.  We welcome and encourage your thoughts. You can provide input at, by email at, or by mail to:

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
