Labor Delay Weekend Delays Likely On Bay Bridge

There could be "significant delays" for people crossing the Bay Bridge for the Labor Day weekend.

The Maryland Transportation Authority is estimating that more than 366,000 vehicles will travel over the Bay Bridge from today through Monday, an increase of three percent over last year.

The state is advising travelers to cross the bridge during non-peak hours if possible, early in the morning or late at night. But off-peak hours today won't start until 10 p.m., so if you're heading to the Eastern Shore or the beach through the afternoon, traffic backups are more likely. On Labor Day Monday avoiding peak travel times on the bridge will mean crossing before 11 a.m. or after 10 p.m.
