Md. to upgrade light poles on Naval Academy Bridge

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Highway officials say work will begin to upgrade 80 light poles and fixtures on the Naval Academy Bridge.

The State Highway Administration said Thursday that work will begin Monday night. Work will take place Sundays through Thursdays from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The bridge over the Severn River, over which 17,000 vehicles travel daily, includes sidewalks and bike lanes in both directions.

Upgrades will include replacing poles and wiring and installing decorative, energy-efficient LED lighting.
