No two-way on Bay Bridge today
The weather is expected to be pretty rotten again today, so the Maryland Transportation Authority has decided not to try two-way operations on the westbound span. That's the prudent call, but it also means there may be some serious backups in the eastbound direction -- especially this afternoon and evening.
Baltimore-area folks who are heading for the beach this P.M. should give serious thought to taking the northern route. People who are doubly smart will avoid the Delaware Toll Plaza -- scene of many a backup -- and cut over on Route 272 to U.S. 40 east at North East, cross the state line and take a right on Wrangle Hill Road to Delaware Route 1 south.
