WESTBOUND #BAYBRIDGEWORK MID-DAY CENTER LANE
CLOSURES RESUME WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10

Crews Working to Reopen Westbound Right Lane a Year Ahead of Schedule

 

BALTIMORE, MD – As part of the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA) continuing efforts to expedite the #BayBridgeWork deck rehabilitation project, temporary off-peak closures of the center lane of the westbound Bay Bridge (US 50/301) are scheduled to resume Monday, February 10, weather permitting. Crews will take advantage of lower winter traffic volumes and warmer temperatures to advance the rehabilitation of the westbound right lane while avoiding morning and afternoon rush hours. The center lane closures will give crews a safe work zone to pour concrete onto the westbound right lane.

 

On Monday, February 10, and Tuesday, February 11, motorists should expect center lane closures any time between 10 a.m. and 2:45 p.m., weather and traffic volumes permitting. We encourage westbound drivers to plan extra time in your travel, especially if traveling to a scheduled appointment.

 

MDTA will continue to monitor weather forecasts. Should conditions permit, crews will move this daytime work to overnight hours to minimize impacts to bridge customers. During the center lane closures, the remaining lane will be 11 feet wide, meaning wide loads – vehicles wider than 10 feet – will be prohibited. Operators of wide-load vehicles should adjust westbound travel times and can sign up for email and text alerts at mdta.maryland.gov and subscribe to #BayBridgeWork for commercial vehicle notifications.
