STEVENSVILLE, Md.- The Maryland Transportation Authority is advising motorists that increased traffic is expected at the Bay Bridge this weekend.

The MDTA said that due to NASCAR races in Dover and Wine Fest in Ocean City, higher-than-normal traffic volumes are expected from Friday through Sunday. The MDTA said it will monitor traffic conditions throughout the weekend and, weather permitting, implement two-way operations on the westbound span to help alleviate potential eastbound delays. Two-way will not be implemented, however, in the case of inclement weather, to protect motorists' safety.

According to the MDTA, the best times to travel this weekend are on Friday before 10 a.m. and after 10 p.m., Saturday before 7 a.m. and after 5 p.m. and Sunday before 10 a.m. and after 10 p.m.

Call 1-877-BAYSPAN (229-7726) for 24/7 traffic conditions on the Bay Bridge.
