FILE - In this Jan. 30, 2002 file photo, traffic moves along the westbound span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge near Sandy Point, Md. It was the largest public works project in the state's history and, at the time, the world's longest overwater structure. It fueled local commerce, allowing Maryland's eastern and western shores to trade goods and services. Life before the Chesapeake Bay Bridge was like another world, and its construction forever changed Maryland's culture. The 4-and-a-half-mile stretch of steel that ties the two sides of Maryland together will be 60 next year, and Maryland Public Television is kicking off celebrations with "The Chesapeake Bay Bridge: Spanning the Bay," a film documenting the structure's history. less
