I'm a little late to the party on this, but back in late June, Metro reopened the pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Green Line that was knocked down by a construction crane back in April of 2015. Work on the replacement had been frequently delayed. Even last December it was to be opened in April.
Bridge-building standards have ...changed since the bridge was built in the early 1990s, leading to more significant reconstruction being needed, College Park Mayor Patrick Wojahn said.
Teachers living in Berwyn Heights who work at Holy Redeemer School — located on Berwyn Road in College Park — now have a connection to bike to work, which is an asset, said Brie Hall, the school's secretary to the principal.
In addition to offering a more attractive, cleaner steel framing, the newly reconstructed segment has also been designed to stand for a longer period of time
Metro officials will consider renovating the entire bridge with the same design within three to five years
