Late-night travelers might want to find an alternative route to Maryland on Thursday: the Woodrow Wilson Bridge is having an opening on Feb. 8.

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration said the bridge is scheduled to undergo routine maintenance.

According to a release:

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration will perform routine maintenance on the I-95/I-495 bridge over the Potomac River (Woodrow Wilson Bridge) in Prince George’s County beginning at 11 p.m. Thursday, February 8. The work is expected to be completed by 5 a.m. Friday… weather permitting.

The release noted that the maintenance period will include brief, periodic openings of the bridge, resulting in full temporary stops in both directions.

“These stops are expected to be 15 to 20 minutes in length and will occur several times overnight,” the release said. “This routine maintenance is necessary for the safe and reliable operation of the drawbridge.”
