ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Two Maryland counties on either side of the Chesapeake Bay are calling for a new, bigger bridge between them.

WTOP-FM reports that the Anne Arundel County Council passed a resolution 6-1 Monday night calling for the state to replace the Chesapeake Bay Bridge’s two spans with a single structure. It matches a resolution recently passed by the Queen Anne’s County Council and calls for a new bridge at the existing site with at least eight lanes to provide adequate capacity and reliable travel times.

Maryland transportation leaders have recommended a new bridge, but proposals include a number of different options and locations, including adding a third span to the existing two spans at the present site.
