Motorists should use caution on bridges due to high winds, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MdTA) said Sunday.
Wind warnings were in effect on the Key Bridge as well as the Hatem, Tydings and Bay bridges. The MdTA issues wind warnings when winds are between 30 and 39 mph.
People driving motorcycles, vehicles with roof cargo, box trucks or trailers should be extra careful while traveling on bridges during high wind, MdTA advised.
On the Key Bridge, the MdTA advised all motorists to use caution due to crosswinds.
When driving in wind, experts advise reducing speed, maintaining distance between other vehicles, avoiding debris and keeping two hands on the wheel.
In addition to the wind advisories on bridges, a gale warning was in effect for Baltimore and Harford Counties through 6 p.m. on Dec. 30. A gale warning means that winds at sea are between 39 and 54 mph and boaters should stay off the water.
