BALTIMORE, MD -- As summer comes to an unofficial close, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) reminds the nearly 1.8 million motorists anticipated to travel its facilities over the Labor Day holiday weekend to plan ahead; travel off-peak; and Drive Smart.  Arrive Safe.  This total represents a one percent increase in traffic volumes compared to last year.

MDTA officials anticipate the following number of vehicles to travel its toll facilities between Friday, Aug. 30, and Monday, Sept. 2:

  •          For current toll rates, visit mdta.maryland.gov and click on Toll Rate Calculator.  The cash toll rate for two-axle vehicles at the Bay Bridge is $6.

Those traveling in or around Downtown Baltimore should note that the Baltimore Grand Prix will bring additional traffic to the area Friday through Sunday and may result in major delays on I-95 during peak travel periods.  Motorists whose destinations are north or south of the city are urged to use I-895 or I-695 to avoid Downtown traffic.  Portions of I-395 will be closed between Wednesday, Aug. 28 and Tuesday, Sept. 3.  Consider public transportation – Light Rail, Metro Subway and Local Bus provide transit options.  Visit mta.maryland.gov for more information.

Keeping traffic moving as safely and efficiently as possible is the MDTA’s priority.  The MDTA Police will remain vigilant and target aggressive and impaired drivers, seatbelt violators and criminal activity.  The MDTA Police and Vehicle Recovery Units will have additional patrols on duty to respond quickly to incidents and disabled vehicles. 

For your safety and the safety of other motorists and emergency personnel:

  •          Pay attention to new lane markings and rumble strips on the Bay Bridge westbound span.  Lane changes between the westbound left and center lanes are prohibited for the entire span, whether or not two-way operations are in effect.
  •          Obey posted speed limits and overhead lane-control signals.
  •          Devote your full attention to driving – it is illegal to text and use hand-held cell phones while driving in Maryland.
  •          Keep a safe following distance to avoid rear-end collisions.
  •          Do not change lanes while traveling over bridges and through tunnels.
  •          Keep your eyes on the road – do not sight-see. 
  •          Make sure your vehicle is “road ready”-- one disabled vehicle can cause extensive backups.
  •          If your vehicle becomes disabled, remain inside and call #77 for assistance.
  •          Move-over when passing an emergency situation.  If you are unable to move over, slow down.
  •          The MDTA Police will continue to enhance highway safety and target aggressive drivers during the fourth wave of the Smooth Operator Program from Sept. 1 through Sept. 7.  

The MDTA will lift construction-related temporary lane closures at its facilities from 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28, to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3.
