MDTA releases plans to reduce traffic at Bay Bridge
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - Maryland drivers could soon see some relief at the Bay Bridge.
The Maryland Transportation Authority has released preliminary plans to help alleviate traffic around the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
They’ve come up with four options—one of them would be to leave the bridge as is.
Corridor 6 would build a bridge from Maryland 100 to US 301 between Pasadena, Md., Rock Hall and Centreville.
Corridor 7 would keep the existing Bay Bridge and build another bridge next to it that will expand the throughway.
Finally, corridor 8 will create a bridge between US 50/301 between Crofton and Easton.
Starting in September, the MDTA will hold open houses explaining all options. Attendees are asked to give input into what option they would prefer.
The first meeting will take place on September 24 from 6 - 8 p.m. at Kent High School in Worton, Md.
