STEVENSVILLE, Md. - All lanes on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge have reopened. 

A fire in a construction area beneath the bridge shut down traffic in the westbound lanes earlier tonight as officials investigated.

According to the Maryland Transportation Authority, the fire is out but the closure caused major delays and backed up traffic on westbound Route 50 as far as Grasonville.

Officials are still trying to figure out exactly what caused the fire.
