Public Meetings Set on Chesapeake Bay Crossing Study

Posted: May 07, 2018 10:12 AM Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- The Maryland Transportation Authority is hosting a series of public meetings regarding a study of traffic capacity and access across the Chesapeake Bay.

The Bay Crossing Study is aimed at addressing congestion at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and evaluating the feasibility of new crossings.

The series of six meetings begins Tuesday at Calvert High School in Prince Frederick and concludes May 22 at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills. MDTA staff will be available to answer questions, but there will be no formal presentations.

The range of possible new corridors won't be identified until later this year.

A 2015 study found that the existing bridge can be maintained in safe condition through 2065, but that there will be significant daily backups by 2040 in the summer months without additional crossing capacity.
