The Maryland Department of Transportation makes 511 even easier to use – simply choose your region, then prompt “Reach the Beach” for traffic incidents and travel times from east of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to the Eastern Shore. The 511 travel advisory system provides road conditions and travel times for interstates and major highways throughout the State, including I-70 and I-68 heading west.
In addition to 511, a recorded line is available that specifically provides information about the Chesapeake Bay Bridge at 1-877-BAYSPAN and on the web at Travelers can plan ahead and use EZPass to pay the toll to avoid delays.
