The Washington Post is reporting that the Berwyn bridge repair schedule is hit with another delay. The earliest we can see it happening this Spring.

The paper says: “Nine months after a Metro contractor’s crane destroyed a pedestrian bridge over Green Line tracks in Prince George’s County, the company has yet to complete replacement of the structure. What’s more, the unusable bridge has further delayed a rail project that was supposed to have been finished nearly two years ago.

Metro says it has done its part to restore the bridge that provides an important pathway connecting two communities in northwestern Prince George’s. But its contractor, the global construction company Skanska, has repeatedly postponed work on the bridge. Most recently, the company canceled work that had been planned for Jan. 8 and 9.

“They’ve made a number of commitments as to a date, and those dates have come and gone,” Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said. “We are not happy.”
