SANDY POINT, Md. (WJZ)— High wind is restricting traffic on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Maryland officials say two-way travel is unlikely Wednesday afternoon.

A Wind Advisory is in effect from 6 p.m. Wednesday until 11 a.m. Thursday. Northwest wind speeds are expected to be between 20 and 30 mph with gusts up to 55 mph.

Wind Restriction I is currently in effect on the Bay Bridge. That means house trailers, empty box trailers or any vehicle that, in the opinion of law-enforcement personnel, may not safely cross the bridge will be prohibited from traveling.

Officials say two-way traffic–during which one lane of eastbound traffic is directed to the westbound span–is unlikely.

Drivers may experience delays during Wednesday evening’s rush-hour period.
