Chesapeake Bay Bridge Now Closed

Posted: Updated:

STEVENSVILLE, Md.- The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is now closed, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority. When the weather conditions improve and it is safe to reopen the bridge, the MDTA will inspect it prior to opening. Inspection could take up to one hour.  Call 1-877-BAYSPAN for real-time traffic conditions. 

The Hatem Bridge is also closed. The Key Bridge (in Baltimore), Tydings Bridge and Nice Bridge are under wind restrictions. Wind Restrictions are issued when sustained wind speeds or wind gusts of 40-49 mph When wind restrictions are implemented, house trailers, empty box trailers or any vehicle that, in the opinion of law-enforcement personnel, may not safely cross the bridge will be prohibited from traveling the bridge. Motorists who are denied passage will be assisted with safely turning around.

Traffic Holds/Bridge Closure are implemented when sustained wind speeds or wind gusts (three within 10 minutes) exceeding 55 mph. In the event of a sudden increase of sustained wind speeds or wind gusts that could jeopardize life or property, the MDTA may elect to discontinue the movement of traffic across the bridge.
