Hearing at Stephen Decatur Middle School to discuss Toll Raises

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

The MD Transportation Authority is proposing to raise tolls.  The Bay Bridge is slated to go from $2.50 to $5.00 on October 1st and then to $8.00 as of July 1, 2013. 


Public hearings are being conducted around the State. The Maryland Transportation Authority says that the toll increase will be used for construction projects on the roadways and bridges used to get to the Eastern Shore of Maryland.


A hearing will be held locally on Thursday, July 14th, 2011 at 5:30 pm. The public hearing will take place at Stephen Decatur Middle School. This is your opportunity to voice your opinion about the proposed toll increases.
