There’s a bridge in America that causes some people to suffer absolute terror. It’s so bad, in fact, that thousands of drivers need help crossing it. The bridge is structurally safe and used by millions each year. Nevertheless, it evokes feelings of intense dread in many drivers – sometimes to the point of panic.
Connecting the eastern and western shores of Maryland, the William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial Bridge, known simply as Bay Bridge, runs for 4.3 miles across the Chesapeake Bay. It forms part of two major highways, U.S. Routes 50 and 301, and as a vital transport link, it is often busy or congested.
