ANNAPOLIS, Md. — An overturned tractor trailer shut down the eastbound side of the Bay Bridge for more than four hours Wednesday night.

It all began around 7:20 p.m., causing traffic on both sides to back up for miles.

MDOT eventually began two-way operations to relieve some of the congestion.

By 11:25 p.m. MDOT said all lanes had been re-opened.

It's unclear what caused the crash and if anyone was injured.
