Transportation officials expect traffic to be lighter this weekend around the area, and Delaware is hoping to ease traffic on I-95 with new toll lanes.
With expected delays on the bridge during peak times, Maryland State Transportation Police commander Lt. Joseph Scott, has advice for drivers.
"We want you to observe posted speed limit signs, and lane control signs," he says. "During two-way traffic operations at the Bay Bridge, we ask that you turn on your headlights and reduce speed to 40 mph. Do not change lanes as you go across the bridge, or through any of the MDTA tunnels."
If you're traveling today, Scott suggests you plan to leave before 11 a.m. or after 10 p.m.
