Cargo ship passes under Bay Bridge
The Bay Bridge has seen its fair share of closures for accidents, disabled vehicles and bridge projects.
But this is the first time they shut the bridge down entirely because of stares.
The Bay Bridge was temporarily shut down Wednesday because a massive cargo ship passed under it. The bridge was closed because authorities feared people would stare at it and cause accidents.
The ship, the length of two football fields, was carrying four 14-story tall cranes.
There were only inches to spare under the Bay Bridge, which is 182 feet high.
The cranes will be housed at the Baltimore Harbor, where they’ll be used to unload shipping containers.
A couple hundred spectators lined the shore to witness the spectacle.
