Repairs are finished on the Old Georgetown Road pedestrian bridge, which is scheduled to reopen today, according to the Bethesda Urban Partnership.
The Montgomery County Department of Transportation closed the bridge, which connects Bethesda Place to the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center, in April to repair and repaint it.
According to Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center Director Ken Hartman, droppings from pigeons roosting in the cladding and poor drainage helped to corrode joints and connections in the steel structure.
The bridge, once light blue, is now red.
