    Drivers should avoid the Chesapeake Bay Bridge due to a tanker truck leak on Route 50 on the eastern side Tuesday afternoon.

    Transit officials shut down the bridge in both directions for a time. It reopened before 5 p.m. after the truck was moved, but traffic remained backed up in the area.

    The tanker was carrying 9,000 gallons of propane. It's unclear what caused the leak.
