A plan to add a new span across the waterway has critics concerned about a triple threat of sprawl, pollution and climate impacts. But Maryland beachgoers are eager for traffic relief. 

Steve Kline, a 7th-generation Marylander, knows well the vacation tradition of driving across the twin spans of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge for trips to the beach resort of Ocean City. His grandfather, an ironworker, helped build the bridge’s first span, which opened in 1952. 

He’s also very familiar with another seasonal rite: wading through the infamous miles-long traffic backups that last from Memorial Day through the end of summer.
