MDSHA announces Rt. 90 bridge lane closure

The Maryland State Highway Administration (MDSHA) will be working on the Route 90 bridge over the Assawoman Bay to repair roadway lighting systems on the bridge. The work will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 16 and Wednesday, Oct. 17., weather permitting.
MDSHA will close the eastbound lane toward Ocean City from 8 a.m. on Tuesday, until 4 a.m. on Wednesday. A flagging operation will be set up to guide traffic across the bridge.  MDSHA will expedite emergency vehicles to cross the bridge leaving or entering Ocean City.
Maryland now features free 511 traveler information. Call 511 or 1-855-GOMD511, or visit  for current travel information. Sign up to personalize travel route information through "MY511" on the website. Remember to use 511 safely – Maryland law restricts hand-held mobile phone use and texting while driving.

While MDSHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers.  Slow down and don’t follow too closely.
