As an international logistics gateway, Trade Point Atlantic’s projected 28,000 tractor trailer trips per day may have several future traffic and environmental impacts on the communities surrounding the new bay bridge crossing. 

To assure that all branches of government give proper consideration to the environment the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)  policy is invoked when highway activities are proposed. 

Environmental Assessments (EAs) and Environmental Impact Statements (EIS)  are assessments required from all Federal agencies.

As part of the 5 million dollar Chesapeake Bay Crossing Study: Tier 1 NEPA (Bay Crossing Study), the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) is hosting a series of public meetings to provide all interested parties an update on the project.
At the meetings, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about:
  • the project’s Purpose and Need,
  • scoping activities and public comments receivedto date,
  • the environmental review process,
  • the alternative corridor development and screening process.
The purpose of the Bay Crossing Study is to consider corridors for providing additional traffic capacity and access across the Chesapeake Bay to improve mobility, travel reliability and safety at the existing Bay Bridge, while considering financial viability and environmental responsibility. The range of corridors will not be presented at these meetings.
Staff will be available to answer questions. No formal presentation will be given, and the same information will be provided at each meeting. All meeting materials will be available at baycrossingstudy.com to view prior to the meetings and for those who choose not to attend in person. Comments may be provided at the meetings, online or by email/U.S. mail.
