Holiday Weekend Leaves Traffic Jammed on Route 52 Causeway
The main route to Ocean City was jammed with weekend visitors coming and going on Saturday.
The Route 52 causeway was backed up for more than two miles with traffic trying to get onto the island for the holiday weekend on Saturday morning and early afternoon.
Motorists experienced the same tieups as they tried to leave the island late Saturday afternoon and early evening. The Route 52 (Ninth Street) and 34th causeways were both backed up all the way from the mainland to the island.
Drivers heading to Ocean City may want to consider an alternate route on Sunday.
Construction on the causeway is limiting traffic to one lane in each direction, and the intersections at either end of the causeway are still not complete. But the project is in its final phases, and a full traffic pattern is expected to return by Memorial Day.
