Alternates

Alternates Retained for Detailed Study (ARDS)

Three alternates were evaluated to help ease traffic congestion and improve motorist safety along Section 200 of I-95, from north of MD 43 to north of MD 22.

No Build Alternate

The No Build alternate retains the same number of lanes along I-95 that exist today. The existing interchanges will remain the same. Routine maintenance and safety upgrades will be done as needed.

General Purpose Lanes Alternate

General Purpose Lanes (GPLs) are like the travel lanes on I-95 today. Under this alternate, additional GPLs would be added to provide the following:

  • Six (6) GPLs per direction from north of MD 43 to MD 24 (Currently there are four lanes)
  • Five (5) GPLs per direction between MD 24 and MD 543 (Currently there are three lanes)
  • Four (4) GPLs from MD 543 to the project limits north of MD 22 (Currently there are three lanes)

Express Toll LanesSM Alternate

The Express Toll Lanes Alternative has been chosen by MDTA as the Selected Alternative for the Section 200 Project Planning Study. Two Express Toll Lanes (ETLs)SM would be added in each direction, from New Forge Road to MD 543. GPLs would be maintained in both directions. Drivers would have the option of paying a toll to drive in the relatively congestion-free ETLs or driving in the GPLs as they do today. Tolls would be collected electronically at highway speeds by E-ZPassSM, with the toll varying based on time of day and traffic conditions. Toll rates would be adjusted periodically with higher rates during peak periods.
