FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — The Maryland State Highway Administration says it’s opening a temporary pedestrian bridge over U.S. 15.

The opening of the span on Monday is part of a two-year project to improve Motter Avenue, which crosses above the busy highway.

The agency say the nearby walkway will give pedestrians a safe route for crossing the highway while the Motter Avenue overpass work is in progress.

It also will keep pedestrians and bicyclists away from the work area.
