Hundreds of thousands of people are expected in Ocean City this weekend for the annual four-day extreme sports event known as the Dew Tour.

For anyone planning a trip to the coast this weekend, Maryland transportation officials say to expect delays and much more traffic than usual on the region's major traffic arteries and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected in Ocean City this weekend for the annual four-day extreme sports event known as the Dew Tour.

Some of the world's top skateboarders, BMX bikers and surfers will compete in the nationally televised extravaganza that has become a mainstay in Ocean City in the past three years, with massive stadiums being erected right on the beach.

MTA officials say two-way traffic operations will be implemented on the Bay Bridge, weather permitting, to help alleviate likely delays and their message is to try and cross the bridge at off-peak hours, meaning anytime Friday before 10 a.m. or after 10 p.m., Saturday before 7 a.m. or after 5 p.m., and Sunday before 10 a.m. or after 10 p.m.
