Safety Measures To Be Taken On Bay Bridge

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Maryland Transportation Authority board has voted to take extra safety measures for two-way traffic in the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
    
The Baltimore Sun reports that the board voted unanimously on Thursday to add continuous rumble strips and a vividly painted buffer to add extra protection when drivers are using the westbound span when it is carrying two-way traffic.
    
The board decided to accept the recommendations of a safety committee that examined conditions relating to five fatal crashes over the last 12 years.
    
The additional safety measures are expected to cost less than $500,000. They will be carried out next spring in time for summer traffic.
