SPLIT TRAFFIC BEGINS THROUGH WORK ZONE ON
NORTHBOUND I-95 IN BALTIMORE CITY

MOVE RIGHT TO ACCESS ALL BALTIMORE EXITS
Automated Speed Enforcement Added to Enhance Safety of Workers and Drivers

Traffic Diagram

WHAT: Four traffic lanes will split around the work zone on northbound I-95 between the Caton Avenue on-ramp and the Fort McHenry Tunnel: one lane to the left and three lanes to the right.

Motorists in the left lane will NOT be able to use Exits 52 (Russell Street), 53 (Northbound I-395), 54 (Hanover Street) and 55 (Key Highway). MOVE RIGHT TO ACCESS ALL BALTIMORE EXITS.

WHEN: Monday, June 9 (starting after 9 p.m.) continuously through mid-July.  All dates and times are approximate and dependent on weather.

Please note that additional changes in traffic patterns will occur on both northbound and southbound I-95 throughout the summer.  Beginning Friday, June 20, the ramp from southbound I-395 to southbound I-95 will be reduced to one lane continuously (24/7) for approximately two months.

WHY: Toll Dollars At Work The new traffic patterns are part of the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (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.

Beginning Tuesday, June 10, Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) equipment will be deployed on northbound I-95 between Caton Avenue (Exit 50) and the Fort McHenry Tunnel.  Following a 21-day warning period, citations will begin on or about July 1.  This equipment will be used to reduce the speed of vehicles in advance of and through the work zone that stretches along four miles of northbound I-95 in Baltimore City.  Advanced warning signs are in place prior to the work zone to alert drivers of ASE use, while a “speed trailer” will display drivers’ speeds.  By law, if a vehicle is recorded as traveling 12 or more mph over the posted speed limit (the posted speed is 50 mph at this location), a $40 fine will be issued to the registered owner of the vehicle.
