Pipkin Calls for Bay Bridge Users’ Bill of Rights

Maryland Senator EJ Pipkin is again pushing for changes aimed at making crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge easier for drivers. Pipkin is again pushing the Maryland Department of Transportation to stop collecting tolls in the eastbound lanes when backups to get on the bridge extend more than 30 minutes. Pipkin pushed that and other bridge-focused initiatives last year as part of his “Bay Bridge Users’ Bill of Rights.” The eastern shore lawmaker has also been working to get a third span built across the Bay.
