As part of the Chesapeake Bay Crossing Study: Tier 1 NEPA (Bay Crossing Study), the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) will host a series of public meetings to provide all interested parties an update on the project. At the meetings, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the project’s Purpose and Need, scoping activities and public comments received to date, the environmental review process and the alternative corridor development and screening process.

The purpose of the Bay Crossing Study is to consider corridors for providing additional traffic capacity and access across the Chesapeake Bay to improve mobility, travel reliability and safety at the existing Bay Bridge, while considering financial viability and environmental responsibility. The range of corridors will not be presented at these meetings.

Staff will be available to answer questions. No formal presentation will be given, and the same information will be provided at each meeting. All meeting materials will be available at baycrossingstudy.comto view prior to the meetings and for those who choose not to attend in person. Comments may be provided at the meetings, online or by email or U.S. Mail.
