14 Potential Locations for a New Bridge Across the Chesapeake Bay
"It’s been discussed for several years, and now the state of Maryland and the Federal Highway Administration are conducting a $5 million study to look at where a new Chesapeake Bay Bridge crossing might work best," reports John Domen.
A series of maps [pdf] are already public, showing 14 potential crossings of the Chesapeake Bay, from Aberdeen to the north and Lexington Park to the south.
"This early in the process, there is a wide range of possibilities on the table, with different reasons for their impracticality," according to Domen. "But those that seem more feasible may find other roadblocks instead."
Domen describes a bit about each of the 14 potential crossings, and also highlights some of the potential political backlash a new bridge could face from either side of the political aisle.
