Wind, Heavy Rain To Halt 2-Way Traffic On Westbound Bay Bridge

SANDY POINT, Md. (AP) — Maryland Transportation Authority officials say winds and heavy rain will likely prevent two-way traffic on one Bay Bridge’s span.

As Tropical Storm Andrea approaches Maryland, officials are warning travelers to expect delays Friday afternoon without the two-way operations that can ease congestion by allowing one lane of eastbound traffic on the westbound span.

Officials say they will monitor weather conditions and will open up the westbound span to eastbound traffic if possible.

Officials also warn that windy conditions may make restrictions on larger vehicles and certain cargo necessary.
