On September 7, 12, and 14, 2023, the MDTA hosted Open Houses for the Chesapeake Bay Crossing Study: Tier 2 NEPA (Tier 2 Study). The Tier 2 Study considers measures to provide congestion relief and improve travel reliability, mobility, and safety across the Chesapeake Bay. The Tier 2 Study is focusing on the two-mile wide Selected Corridor Alternative (Corridor 7), which extends from the Severn River Bridge to the US 50/US 301 split and was approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in the Record of Decision from the Tier 1 Study.

The MDTA is committed to providing opportunities for inclusive and transparent stakeholder engagement to support an equitable transportation study and outcome. The MDTA invited all interested parties to join us, either virtually or in-person, at an upcoming Tier 2 Study Open House.

Open House attendees were able to:

  • learn about the Tier 2 Study including the proposed Purpose and Need and alternatives development process,
  • discuss the Tier 2 Study with MDTA’s team and ask questions, and
  • Complete the Open House Survey online or print the Open House Survey card and mail it
  • provide comments.

There was no formal presentation; however, the study team was available to answer questions during both the in-person and virtual Open Houses. The same information was provided at each of the Open Houses.
