Hi all,

LSIA received the following notice from Linda Harris on behalf of our Councilwoman Sarah Lacey.

Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) have announced their plans to hold a series of Open Houses to present the current thinking an options on building a new Chesapeake Bay Bridge. All of the current plans call for the bridge options to all start in Anne Arundel County.
