Special Events - Fireworks on July 5th
The Town of Chesapeake Beach “Fireworks Over the Bay” have been postponed until Sunday, July 5 at dusk. We have researched the weather forecasts from various websites and weather forecasters and the determination has been made that Chesapeake Beach and surrounding areas will remain in the current pattern of rainy, stormy conditions for the next couple of days. We feel it is better to be safe than sorry and we hope that by making the call to postpone early, everyone will be able to rearrange their Holiday schedules and enjoy the fireworks on Sunday.
Have a safe and happy Independence Day Holiday!
Traffic Plan for Twin Beaches on July 5: The traffic plan is set up to eliminate all left hand turns on a portion of Route 261 going through the Twin Beaches, eliminating the need to stop traffic randomly and enabling traffic to flow with minimal stopping. The centerline of Route 261 will be blocked with delineation devices that will prohibit vehicles from making U-turns. Traffic north of Route 260 along Route 261 on the east side of Route 261 must make right turns and exit left on 5th Street to Boyd’s Turn Road to Route 260. Traffic on the west side of Route 261 must make a right turn and exit on 27th Street to G Street to Route 260. Traffic south of Route 260 along Route 261 on the east side of Route 261 must make a right turn and must turn left onto Route 260. Traffic on the west side of Route 261 must turn right and continue along Route 261 to Summer City Blvd or continue south to Ponds Wood Road and proceed to Maryland Route 4.
The above Traffic Plan will be instituted around the time of the start of Fireworks.
