#BayBridgeWork Commercial Vehicle Notifications:

Commercial vehicle operators with a CDL can subscribe to #BayBridgeWork notifications by text and/or email. To sign up, click on the link below.

Notifications will be when commercial vehicles are restricted from the Bay Bridge, and when restrictions are lifted.

PLEASE REMEMBER – Do not text or use a handheld device while driving for your safety and the safety of all travelers.

All trucks and buses should be prepared for potential two-way operations Thursdays and Fridays from noon to 10 p.m. Safety is our top priority for all travelers. During two-way operations at reduced speeds, no commercial vehicles are allowed on the WB Bay Bridge due to 11-foot narrowed lanes.

All trucks and buses are encouraged to monitor delays and prepare early to complete your trip, detour to another route or take advantage of available truck parking to wait out the commercial vehicle restrictions on the Bay Bridge. If possible, commercial vehicles should try to adjust schedules to avoid traveling WB late Thursday and Friday afternoons/evenings.

During two-way operations, commercial vehicles not making local deliveries on Kent Island are encouraged to seek alternate routes outlined below and parking options at the link below. If commercial vehicles continue to the Bay Bridge, they will be directed off US 50 WB at Route 8 and redirected to US 50 EB.
