**REVISED SCHEDULE**
SPLIT TRAFFIC BEGINS THROUGH WORK ZONE
ON SOUTHBOUND I-95 IN BALTIMORE CITY
Major New Traffic Pattern By Saturday Morning

I-95 Work Zone Traffic Pattern

 

WHAT: Weather permitting, three traffic lanes will split around the work zone on southbound I-95 between MD 295 and the I-395 on-ramp: one lane to the left and two lanes to the right.

Monday through Friday, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., southbound I-95 traffic  will be reduced to two lanes: one lane to the left and one to the right to allow   two lanes on southbound I-395 exiting Baltimore City.  Southbound I-395   will have one lane open at all other times.

WHEN: Friday, May 30 (starting after 9 p.m.) through Sunday, June 15.   All dates and times are approximate and dependent on weather.

Please note that additional changes in traffic patterns will occur on   northbound and southbound I-95 throughout the summer.  Beginning   June 15, the ramp from southbound I-395 to southbound I-95 will be reduced to one lane continuously (24/7) for approximately two months.

WHY:  The new traffic patterns are part of the Maryland Transportation Authoritys (MDTA) two-year, $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 in Baltimore City.

REMINDER: The speed limit on northbound I-95 between the Fort McHenry Tunnel and north of Caton Avenue (Exit 50) and on southbound I-95 between I-395 (Exit 53) to just past the MD 295 entrance ramp was reduced from 55 mph to 50 mph.  Allow for more travel time in your commute.
