ANNAPOLIS, MD - The eastbound span of the Bay Bridge will close several times next week for preservation and maintenance roadwork.

Weather permitting, the eastbound crossing will be closed during these times:

  • Sunday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning
  • Monday through Wednesday from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning
  • Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning
  • Friday from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. the following morning
  • Saturday from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. the following morning

These times could change. Closures may start earlier in the night if traffic volumes allow.

The westbound span will be open for two-way traffic.

Drivers can call 1-877-BAYSPAN (1-877-229- 7726) for 24/7 bridge conditions.

The Maryland Transportation Authority recently started replacing the deck, or the roadway, on the eastbound span. Major work will start this winter.

The MDTA expects to finish in the winter spanning late 2025 and early 2026. Crews will work overnight to minimize disruptions.

To learn more about the deck replacement, read Patch's initial story on the $140 million project.
