In an effort to relieve Eastern Shore-bound traffic, the state plans to add a fourth eastbound lane over the Severn River Bridge, located near Annapolis on Route 50. The $22.8 million project begins construction on September 5 and is scheduled for completion by May 2018.
The Washington Post reports:
The extra lane will come from shifting the existing median barrier and re-striping the pavement to create four lanes in the eastbound direction and three for westbound traffic.
