Traffic Update: Bridge Run on Sunday 11/8

Just a friendly reminder for our friends and neighbors that the 10K Across the Bay, billed as the “6th Largest 10K in the US” will be happening on Sunday, 11/8. You’ll want to avoid the Bay Bridge (it will be closed for part of the day) and some of Route 50. See below for hours and details. Good luck to all runners!

ACROSS THE BAY 10K TO RESULT IN TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF BAY BRIDGE’S EASTBOUND SPAN

Motorists Should Anticipate Heavy Traffic & Delays on Nov. 8

Weather permitting, the eastbound span of the Bay Bridge (US 50/301) will be closed temporarily to traffic on Sunday, Nov. 8, from approximately 12:01 a.m. – 2 p.m. Two-way traffic operations will be in place on the westbound span. One lane of traffic will operate in each direction on the westbound span, with the center lane closed to traffic. Please note that the center lane may open to traffic intermittently to help reduce westbound delays.

In addition, two detours will be in place on the Eastern Shore due to the race.

The off-ramp from US 50 eastbound to MD 8 will be closed during the event. A detour will be in place to direct motorists to the next exit at Thompson Creek Road. From there, motorists will travel westbound on MD 835 to the signal at MD 8.

The on-ramp from MD 8 to westbound US 50 also will be closed during the event. All traffic attempting to access westbound US 50 will be directed to MD 18, to the roundabout at Castle Marina Road and onto US 50 west.

Motorists using the Bay Bridge on Nov. 8 will experience significant delays throughout the day and early evening. To avoid delays, motorists are urged to travel prior to 6 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
