A major repaving project on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel will reduce traffic to two lanes beginning Thursday, February 6.

According to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel's communications department, during the last 10-mile stretch of the bridge, the northbound lanes will be moved over to share the southbound side. The repaving project spans from just outside the Chesapeake Tunnel to nearly the entrance of the Eastern Shore.

The bridge will remain open to all traffic throughout the project, but due to the condensed lanes, no passing will be allowed.

The project's exact ending date is uncertain, but it is slated for a wrap-up in May before the peak of tourism season.
