An early morning or very late night start is recommended for beachgoers, other tourists and drivers who are going to travel across the Bay Bridge to conclude the Labor Day weekend.
The Maryland Transportation Authority recommends travelers leave either after 11 p.m. tonight or before 10 a.m. or after 11 p.m. on Labor Day.
The Bay Bridge and Route 50 have seen heavy holiday volumes and some accidents causing delays this Labor Day weekend.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan's new COVID-19 order went into place Friday allowing for more businesses to reopen or to expand their reopenings. Fewer hospitalizations and other improving COVID-19 metrics could help encourage travel and tourism on the Eastern Shore including destinations such as St. Michaels, Easton and Ocean City.
