Sunfest expected to increase traffic volume in OC over weekend

The Maryland Transit Authority has announced that due to Sunfest in Ocean City from September 22-25, drivers should expect higher than normal traffic volumes.

The MDTA says it will monitor traffic conditions throughout the weekend and, weather permitting, implement two-way operations on the westbound span to help alleviate potential eastbound delays.

For safety reasons, however, two-way will NOT be implemented in inclement weather.

The MDTA encourages drivers to travel off-peak from Thursday-Sunday, meaning the best times to travel this weekend are:

  • Thursday before noon and after 10PM
  • Friday before 10AM and after 10PM
  • Saturday before 7AM and after 5PM
  • Sunday before 10AM and after 10PM
