With each passing day, the creeks and rivers of the Chesapeake Bay are filling with windowpanes of ice, beautiful to look at but capable of slicing through the hull of a boat with deadly precision. Several weeks of teeth-chattering cold that triggered a massive fish kill, stranded duck hunters on an ice-choked island off Baltimore County and contributed to Maryland's first boating fatality also have put the state's ice-breaking fleet on standby to begin the great push back. After a fast start to the ice-breaking season in December, sheets of frozen water are again starting to knit together in tributary shallows.

Officials left all lanes of the Bay Bridge open for holiday travelers yesterday, and there were no reports of heavy traffic in either direction as the Labor Day weekend came to a close. Starting today, one lane on the eastbound bridge will be closed around the clock for up to 10 weeks while crews work on the concrete barriers that serve as its walls. Concerns about the barriers' safety emerged after a fatal Aug. 10 accident in which a tractor-trailer broke through and plunged into the bay. While officials say the bridge's deck and underpinnings are structurally sound, they say they need to reinforce the barriers with steel plates and extra bolts and add metal guard rails.
