The Salisbury Daily Times reports that 91 percent are expected to be motorists.

Meanwhile, the Maryland Department of Transportation says that it expects there to be 3.4 million travelers using the state’s highways, bridges and tunnels.

As for the Bay Bridge state officials told the paper that they expected 465-thousand vehicles to make the crossing.
