A bridge in rural Washington County that has been closed for about two years is expected to open late this afternoon. Washington County Commissioner John C. Munson said Monday the Broadfording Road Bridge, which runs over Conococheague Creek near Hopps Landing Road, will open after a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. "I'll be glad, for sure," Munson said. The bridge closed in June 2003 for repairs. It was to be finished later that year, but the county and the original contractor couldn't agree on the cost of additional work needed because of weather-related damage to the bridge.
