Motorists Advised to Travel Off-Peak, Call 1-877-BAYSPAN (229-7726) for Current Traffic Conditions

Due to Sunfest in Ocean City, Md., motorists should expect higher than normal traffic volumes Thursday, Sept. 24, through Sunday, Sept. 27. The MDTA will monitor traffic conditions throughout the weekend and, weather permitting, implement two-way operations (when one lane of eastbound traffic travels on the westbound span) on the westbound span to help alleviate potential eastbound delays. For motorists' safety, two-way will NOT be implemented in inclement weather.

The MDTA encourages motorists to travel off-peak. The best times to travel this weekend are:

  • Thursday before noon and after 10 p.m.
  • Friday before 10 a.m. and after 10 p.m.
  • Saturday before 7 a.m. and after 5 p.m.
  • Sunday before 10 a.m. and after 10 p.m.
