Md. Highway Crews Responding to High Water and Downed Trees

Posted:

UNDATED- The Maryland State Highway Administration says more than 1,200 of its crews are responding to flooded roads, downed trees and signal outages along state highways.

Major bridge crossings are also closed due to high winds, including the US 50 and MD 90 Bridges in Ocean City.  The Maryland Transportation Authority closed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the US 40 Hatem Bridge and the I-695 Key Bridge.  Several other bridges have wind restrictions in place.

The SHA reports that more than two dozen signals are out either due to storm or power issues.  

The SHA reminds anyone who chooses to drive that a new law took effect Oct. 1 requiring drivers to treat an intersection without power to the signal system as a four-way stop.
