Left Lane Closed 24/7 on Southbound I-395 Ramp to Southbound I-95


On Tuesday, July 8 (after 9 p.m.), the traffic pattern will change and traffic lanes will shift to the left of the work zone with all three lanes to the left on southbound I-95.  This condition will remain until mid-August.

Three lanes left of work zone.

The ramp from southbound I-395 to southbound I-95 exiting Baltimore City is reduced to one lane continuously (24/7) until mid-August. 

  Use the following alternate routes when exiting downtown:

  • Key Highway to McComas Street, to northbound and southbound I-95;
  • Russell Street to southbound I-95;
  • Washington Boulevard to southbound I-95; and
  • Lombard Street to Monroe Street, to Wilkens Avenue, to Caton Avenue, to southbound I-95.

Currently, traffic lanes on northbound I-95 split around the work zone between the Caton Avenue on-ramp and the Fort McHenry Tunnel: one lane to the left and three lanes to the right.  Use the right lanes for Baltimore exits 52-55 and the left lane only for traffic through the tunnel (no exit before toll).  This condition will remain until mid-July.

The work zone is for MDTAs $66 million project to remove and replace the existing concrete deck (riding) surface and roadway joints on mainline I-95 and the ramps serving I-95 between the Fort McHenry Tunnel and Caton Avenue (Exit 50).  This preservation project, funded completely by toll revenue and expected to last two construction seasons, includes lane shifts on mainline I-95, reduced lane widths, elimination of shoulders and full-time and part-time ramp closures and detours around the work zone.
