POTEE STREET/PATAPSCO AVENUE TO NORTHBOUND I-895

 

WHAT:           The entrance ramp from Potee Street/Patapsco Avenue to northbound I-895 in Baltimore City will remain continuously closed (24/7) for approximately 45 additional days.  Previously the closure was anticipated to reopen on July 7. 

The detour route will continue to direct motorists to I-895 via Frankfurst Avenue.

WHY:              Repairs to the I-895 Potee Street and Patapsco Avenue entrance and exit ramps are part of the MD Transportation Authority's (MDTA) project to replace the decks of the I-895 bridges over Patapsco Avenue, Potee Street and Hanover Street.
