Safety Improvements for the Bay Bridge

Posted:

STEVENSVILLE, Md.- Safety improvements are coming to the westbound span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

Beginning April 19, the Maryland Transportation Authority will install rumble strips, new lane markings and signs on the westbound Bay Bridge. The upgrades are to improve safety during "two-way" traffic operations.

A painted buffer and rumble strips will be added between the westbound left and center lanes.

Construction is set to begin April 19, and is expected to last about a week, the work will be done overnight if weather permits. The westbound span may close Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., Sunday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. and Monday through Thursday 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

During the closures, the two-way traffic will run on the eastbound span.
