New signs, gates on Bay Bridge to give drivers earlier warning of lane closures

March 3, 2023

Starting next week, drivers heading to the Eastern Shore over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge will encounter a new automatic lane closure system during two-way traffic on the westbound span of the bridge. The system will roll out March 6 on the Western Shore near U.S. 50/U.S. 301, the Maryland Transportation Authority announced. This system is aimed at improving safety for motorists and road crews by using overhead signals and automatic gates to close lanes, instead of barrels.
