As summer comes to an unofficial close, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) reminds the more than 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 2% increase in traffic volumes compared to last year.
MDTA officials anticipate the following number of vehicles to travel its toll facilities between Friday, Sept. 4, and Monday, Sept. 7:
William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial (Bay) Bridge (US 50/301) – more than 354,000.
John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway (I-95) – more than 448,000.
Fort McHenry Tunnel (I-95, I-395) – more than 429,000.
An additional 574,000 vehicles are projected to travel the Francis Scott Key Bridge (I-695), the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I-895), the Thomas J. Hatem Memorial Bridge (US 40) and the Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge (US 301) combined. All totals represent traffic in both directions.
