Bay Bridge Reopens After Hazmat Leak

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is open after a hazmat spill prompted its closure.

Both spans of the bridge were closed Tuesday about 3:30 p.m. after a tanker truck leaked propane while heading west. Hazmat crews responded and cleared the scene.

Cheryl Sparks, a spokeswoman with the Maryland Transportation Authority, says the westbound lanes reopened at 5:15 p.m. and the eastbound lanes reopened at 4:56 p.m.

Sparks says there were four-mile backups in both directions at one point during the closure. The eastbound lane was still backed up about two miles early Tuesday evening.
