TRAFFIC: Westbound Route 50 down to one lane
The westbound U.S. 50 bridge over us 301 in Queenstown, Md., is down to one lane due to construction. Drivers should avoid that route.
Half of the bridge is demolished to be rebuilt this winter, so there is no way to quickly open up a lane. Backups were bad in September with shore events and this may be worse.
