Eastbound Bridge Lane Reopens
5 P.M. Update: The Maryland Transportation Authority announced the right lane of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge's eastbound span has reopened, and the lengthy delays have cleared.
The lane had been closed since a tractor trailer crashed through the side barrier and fell into the bay on Sunday morning, killing the driver.
During the closure, transportation authority police performed an accident reconstruction while workers repaired the bridge. The left lane of the eastbound span reopened to eastbound traffic at 8:20 p.m. Sunday.
Get the latest on the traffic by calling 877-BAYSPAN or go to the Bay Bridge Web site.
