Please Stay on Route 50

If you are heading to the Bay Bridge, stay on Route 50, it is the best and quickest route for through traffic.

shot of Bridge, no traffic

It is vital for the delivery of Emergency Services, citizen mobility, school operations and local businesses that we work together to minimize congestion on MD 18.  If your destination is across the bridge and not on Rt. 18, we are asking for your help by remaining on US 50/301 to reach that destination safely.

Apps like Waze and Google attempt to find alternative routes that take you through neighborhoods only to take you back to R. 50/301. There is only one way to cross the Bay!
