ANNAPOLIS, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - Getting to Ocean City or anywhere else in the Eastern Shore is proving to be a bigger challenge than usual thanks to the new lane closure on the westbound span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
Beginning Monday night, two-way operations — when one lane of eastbound traffic travels on the westbound span — will be suspended because of the narrow lane configuration associated with the repairs.
The project, which will cost $27 million, will replace the bridge deck surface of the westbound right lane and will also make deck repairs and seal the bridge deck.
All lanes will re-open for summer 2020. Then, closures will resume in September 2020. The project is expected to be completed in August 2021.
