THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
MAJOR ROADWORK ON I-95 IN BALTIMORE
ENDING LATE OCTOBER
Entire Project Complete Mid-2016
BALTIMORE, MD – Major roadwork on I-95 between the Fort McHenry Tunnel and Caton Avenue (Exit 50) in Baltimore will be wrapping up for this season by late October. The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) wishes to thank motorists for their patience and their flexibility in finding alternative routes, and reporters for getting the word out about this complex project.
The $64 million Latex Modified Concrete (LMC) resurfacing project is the largest of its kind ever bid in the United States. The work by G.A. & F.C. Wagman, Inc., of York, Pa. is the first resurfacing project on I-95 south of the tunnel since the bridges were built between 1974-1978. Throughout the past two construction seasons there were 42 stages of traffic changes – 29 in 2015 alone.
Through extensive outreach, the MDTA alerted drivers of numerous traffic pattern changes, detours and ramp closures. Reporters kept up with the frequent changes, and thankfully drivers paid attention to the traffic reports, road signs and social media alerts, using alternate routes and slowing down in work zones.
While major roadwork ends in late October, construction activities and off-peak lane or ramp closures may still occur until the entire project is complete in mid-2016.
Thank you again for making this project a success – a truly collaborative effort!
