STEVENSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Maryland has closed the main bridge across the Chesapeake Bay because of high winds from Hurricane Sandy.

The Maryland Transportation Authority said it closed the four-lane highway bridge Monday afternoon.

The bridge is the main connector between the Baltimore-Washington area and Maryland's Eastern Shore, across the bay.

Gov. Martin O'Malley also said they were closing another major bridge, where Interstate 95 crosses the Susquehanna River near the top end of Chesapeake Bay.
