During that period last about 1.5 million vehicles traveled over the span each accord- ing to the Maryland Transportation Authority. Traffic was heaviest in when vehicles crossed the Bay Bridge The legislation also calls for the Maryland Transportation Authority to report to the General Assembly by Jan. on the effectiveness of the plan and the fiscal impact on the state Mrs. Smith said she does not expect any effect on state since the bill allows fees for east- bound traffic to be adjusted to make up any anticipated loss Collecting fees from people head- ing east does not cause the backup on weekends because peo- ple are leaving at different Mrs Smith said coming everybody seems to be leaving at she said She said the plan is one she has been thinking about for several years and one that constituents have asked her to introduce have been telling me it's something that is done in other she said.
