One span of Bay Bridge will be closed Sunday
SANDY POINT — The Maryland Transportation Authority warns motorists to anticipate heavy traffic and delays on Sunday, Nov. 6.
Weather permitting, on Sunday, Nov. 6, from 12:01 a.m. to 2 p.m., the eastbound span of the Bay Bridge (US 50/301) will be closed temporarily to traffic for the “Across the Bay 10K” running event. Twoway traffic operations will be in place on the westbound span. One lane of traffic will operate in each direction on the westbound span, with the center lane closed to traffic. However, the center lane may open to traffic intermittently to help reduce westbound delays.
In addition, two detours will be in place on the Eastern Shore due to the race:
• The off-ramp from eastbound US 50 to MD 8 will be closed. A detour will be in place to direct motorists to the next exit at Thompson Creek Road. From there, motorists will travel westbound on MD 835 to the signal at MD 8.
• The on-ramp from MD 8 to westbound US 50 will be closed. All traffic attempting to access westbound US 50 will be directed to MD 18, to the roundabout at Castle Marina Road and onto westbound US 50.
• MD 18 between Main Street and Love Point Road will be closed. All traffic will be detoured through Stevensville on Love Point Road and Main Street.
• In addition, residents wishing to travel west on US 50 are advised to approach the highway from either Duke Street or Castle Marina Road.
Motorists using the Bay Bridge on Nov. 6 will experience significant delays throughout the day. To avoid delays, motorists are urged to travel prior to 6 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
