Large constructi­on equipment part of bridge project

-

SANDY POINT — Two pieces of sizable constructi­on equipment will be appearing at the Bay Bridge over the next week or so. They will be located in a work zone behind barrier on the western shore just prior to the bridge spans.

No lanes of traffic on the bridge will be impacted beyond the routine weekday, off-peak lane closures (9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. dependent on weather and traffic volumes).

Crews will begin work installing foundation­s for new overhead lane signal gantries for the eastbound bridge approach. This is part of the ongoing project that will feature the reconfigur­ation of travel lanes to match the existing roadway that is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022.

Maryland Transporta­tion Authority reminds motorists to avoid distractio­ns, follow posted speed limits, obey all signs and traffic control devices for your safety and the safety of workers.
