Maryland has been studying alternatives for a new Chesapeake Bay bridge crossing. The Anne Arundel County Bicycle Advisory Commission weighed in on this in 2021 insisting on a separated bike/ped lane as has been done on major bridges throughout the nation. Unfortunately, the governor’s initial announcement of such a facility on the Nice Bridge replacement was later removed. Advocates are still pressing to preserve the old bridge as a bike/ped crossing. These are once in a lifeline opportunities to create such crossings and bike/ped facilities should be included in any new crossings including the Chesapeake Bay, Susquehanna River and Potomac River. We encourage you to support this position during virtual and in person public forums and comment periods in September, 2022. You can learn more about the studies and public forums:
