Maryland Senate Bill 34 wants to keep Eastern Shore counties out of the loop when it comes to deciding where a new bay bridge will be built. Under current state law, the Eastern Shore counties get to vote and a majority affirmative vote is needed before the state of Maryland can get started on any bridge project across the bay. With chronic congestion on the Route 50 Chesapeake Bay bridge, the state currently has a map with numerous possible bridge sites both north and south of the current bridge. The proposed bill would remove the required endorsement by the Eastern Shore. The Cecil County Council said they will oppose any bill that limits their input into major road or bridge projects that affect the Eastern Shore.
