WESTBOUND #BAYBRIDGEWORK MID-DAY CENTER LANE CLOSURES FEBRUARY 18 - 21

BAY BRIDGE PROGRESS: ALL LANES OPEN BY SUMMER 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                    

February 14, 2020                                                                                                                            

 

WESTBOUND #BAYBRIDGEWORK MID-DAY CENTER LANE CLOSURES FEBRUARY 18 - 21

 

The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) will close the center lane of the westbound Bay Bridge Tuesday, Feb. 18, through Friday, Feb. 21, any time between 10 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. daily, weather and traffic volumes permitting. Crews will take advantage of lower winter traffic volumes and warmer temperatures to advance the rehabilitation of the westbound right lane while avoiding morning and afternoon rush hours. The center lane closures will give crews a safe work zone to pour concrete onto the westbound right lane.

 

We encourage drivers to plan extra time in your travel, especially if you’re traveling to a scheduled appointment.

MDTA will continue to monitor weather forecasts. Should conditions permit, crews will move this daytime work to overnight hours to minimize impacts to bridge customers.

 

During the center lane closures, the remaining lane will be 11 feet wide, meaning wide loads – vehicles wider than 10 feet – will be prohibited. Operators of wide-load vehicles should adjust westbound travel times and can sign up for email and text alerts at mdta.maryland.gov and subscribe to #BayBridgeWork for commercial vehicle notifications.

 

Any cancellations of these closures will be announced through these alerts and MDTA social media accounts.
