NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN FOR SOUTHBOUND I-95

AT I-95/MD 43 INTERCHANGE EXIT RAMPS NOV. 15

New single exit ramp for eastbound AND westbound MD 43

Exit 67 to replace Exits 67A/B

SB95Exit67

WHAT:          Weather permitting, the exit ramps from southbound I-95 to eastbound and westbound MD 43 (White Marsh Boulevard) will be converted into a single exit ramp (Exit 67). Currently, traffic exits southbound I-95 to MD 43 via Exits 67A and 67B.  The new single exit ramp will direct traffic to a split for either eastbound or westbound MD 43.  Please note that access to eastbound and westbound MD 43 (Exit 67) will now come prior to passing under MD 43 on I-95.

WHEN:          The exit ramp switch will occur for southbound I-95 in time for Friday morning commuters, after which the new traffic pattern shown above will be in effect.  The change was completed for northbound I-95 on Oct. 29.

WHY:             The work is part of the reconstruction of the I-95/MD 43 interchange for the MD Transportation Authority's (MDTA) I-95 Express Toll Lanes (ETLSM) Project.

 

The new I-95 Express Toll Lanes are expected to open in late 2014.  For more information, visit I95ExpressTollLanes.com.
