MARYLAND - The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) reminds drivers the eastbound span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge will be closed temporarily to traffic on Sun., Nov. 4.
MDTA says weather permitting, two-way traffic operations will be in place on the westbound span from 12:01 a.m. to 2 p.m. One lane of traffic will operate in each direction on the westbound span, with the center lane closed to traffic. The center lane may open to traffic intermittently to help reduce westbound delays.
In addition, the following closures and detours will be in place on the Eastern Shore during the event:
- The off-ramp from eastbound US 50 to MD 8 will be closed. A detour will be in place to direct motorists to the next exit at Thompson Creek Rd. From there, motorists will travel westbound on MD 835 to the signal at MD 8.
- The on-ramp from MD 8 to westbound US 50 will be closed. All traffic attempting to access westbound US 50 will be directed to MD 18, to the roundabout at Castle Marina Rd. and onto westbound US 50.
- MD 18 between Main St. and Love Point Rd. will be closed. All traffic will be detoured through Stevensville on Love Point Rd. and Main St.
- In addition, residents wishing to travel west on US 50 are advised to approach the highway from either Duke St. or Castle Marina Rd.
The MDTA says the “Across the Bay 10K” running event will be held on the eastbound span. For additional information on the event, visit bridgerace.com.
MDTA says motorists using the Bay Bridge will experience significant delays throughout the day. To avoid delays, motorists are urged to travel prior to 6 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
