BAY BRIDGE LANE SLATED TO REOPEN AHEAD OF SCHEDULE

STEVENSVILLE, Md. (AP) – The center lane of the westbound span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is slated to open about three weeks ahead of schedule.
The lane has been closed since January 3, while road crews repaired more than a mile of cracked concrete. The cracks were the result of a botched paving job.
State officials had set a goal of opening the lane by Memorial Day. They said good weather was a factor in allowing them to finish early.
