First Substantive Look at Future Bay Bridge Plans

thumbnail_new bridge.pngAfter narrowing down the possibly locations for a new bay crossing from fourteen options to three, Anne Arundel County residents got their first substantive look at the preliminary plans.

The Maryland Transportation Authority (MTA) hosted an open house at the Anne Arundel Community College on Wednesday night. MTA showed attendees maps and graphics of the proposals and received feedback on the ideas.

From WTOP’s article:

“That doesn’t mean that the others are totally off the table,” Kelly Melhem of the Maryland Transportation Authority said. The study honed in on three primary locations, including the area of the existing bridge, another spot just to the north that would connect Pasadena and Rock Hall, and one to the south that would link Crofton and Easton. There is also a “no build” option.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan favors adding a third span to the existing Bay Bridge.

More open houses are planned for Maryland residents, all at 6:00 pm:

  • October 3 – Talbot County Community Center  in Easton
  • October 9 – Kent Island High School in Stevensville
  • October 28 – Annapolis High School in Annapolis
