Bay Bridge to Have Cashless Tolling Thursdays, Fridays During Construction Periods

STEVENSVILLE, Md.- The Maryland Department of Transportation Authority will implement cashless tolling at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge from noon to 10 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays during the $27 million rehabilitation project to replace the deck surface of the right lane of the bridge's westbound span.

Cash drivers can move through the MDTA toll plaza without stopping. All tolls will be collected electronically, and the cash drivers will still get the $4 rate with a statement sent to them in the mail. Drivers are encouraged to get a free E-ZPass transponder at ezpassmd.com to simplify toll payments.

The MDTA said that on Thursdays and Fridays, only under severe backups and weather permitting, it will implement two-way operations allowing drivers to travel eastbound and westbound on the westbound span at speeds of 25 to 35 mph.

Two-way operations for short periods of time will provide three lanes eastbound and one westbound. MDTA Police will travel the westbound span for enforcement and to help slow vehicles down during two-way operations.

During that time, commercial trucks are not allowed to drive eastbound and westbound on the westbound span because the lanes are too narrow.

Drivers should still expect to encounter heavy congestion and delays throughout the project, according to the MDTA.
