The Maryland Transportation Authority says motorists can expect increased weekend traffic at the Bay Bridge. Ocean City is holding its biggest festival, Sunfest, this weekend and is expected to draw large crowds. Higher traffic volumes may be encountered Thursday through Sunday.
Officials encourage motorists to travel at off-peak times. On Thursday and Friday, that’s before 10 am and after 10 pm, on Saturday before 7 am and after 5 pm, and on Sunday before 10 am and after 10 pm.
