STEVENSVILLE, Md.- Due to Sunfest in Ocean City, drivers should expect higher than normal traffic volumes Thursday, Sept. 19, through Sunday, Sept. 22, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority.

The MDTA said it will monitor traffic conditions throughout the weekend and, weather permitting, implement two-way operations (when one lane of eastbound traffic travels on the westbound span) on the westbound span to help alleviate potential eastbound delays.

The MDTA said that for drivers'  safety, two-way traffic will not be implemented in inclement weather.

The MDTA encourages motorists to travel off-peak. The best times to travel this weekend are:

  • Thursday and Friday – before 10 a.m. and after 10 p.m.
  • Saturday – before 7 a.m. and after 5 p.m.
  • Sunday – before 10 a.m. and after 10 p.m.
