Wind restrictions have been issued for the Bay Bridge by the Maryland Transportation as a cold front pushing through the region is expected to generate strong winds.

Two-way traffic has been eliminated on the eastbound span for Wednesday afternoon and evening and motorists should anticipate rush-hour delays, officials said.

Under a wind warning, where gusts or sustained winds reach 30-39 mph, drivers of high-profile vehicles — such as box trailers — and motorcycles and vehicles with roof-mount racks containing cargo are urged to use caution.

When winds reach 40-49 mph or higher, police will stop or turn around high-profile vehicles and others susceptible to the conditions.
