(BALTIMORE, MD) -- The MD Transportation Authority's (MDTA) ramp from northbound I-97 to northbound I-895 in Anne Arundel County is now open to traffic.  The ramp previously closed on May 12 for a bridge deck overlay and repair project on I-895.

A cleaning and painting project for various bridges along I-895 is expected to be complete this fall.  The ongoing deck replacement project for the I-895 bridges over Patapsco Avenue, Potee Street and Hanover Street in Baltimore City is expected to be complete by summer 2014.
