OCEAN CITY — The 34th Street bridge will be closed overnight Thursday instead of Wednesday, Ocean City Special Events Coordinator Michael J. Hartman wrote in an email Wednesday afternoon.
Officials said last week that the bridge would be closed overnight Tuesday and Wednesday, but Hartman said the schedule was changed. The bridge was to remain open Wednesday night, and all lanes will shut down from 10 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday.
The closing is to allow construction crews to pour concrete as part of a two-year, $6.5 million county project to re-deck the bridge.
Traffic on the bridge, which connects Ocean City and Upper Township at Roosevelt Boulevard, has been limited to one lane since summer. That arrangement is scheduled to resume after the closing.
