NEW SPLIT TRAFFIC PATTERN THROUGH WORK ZONE

ON NORTHBOUND I-95 IN BALTIMORE CITY

KEEP RIGHT TO ACCESS ALL BALTIMORE EXITS

NB split traffic

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: two lanes to the left and two lanes to the right.

TWO LEFT LANES NO EXIT BEFORE TOLL.

 

Motorists in the two left lanes will NOT be able to use Exits 52 (Russell Street), 53 (Northbound I-395), 54 (Hanover Street) and 55 (Key Highway) and must enter the Fort McHenry Tunnel and pay the toll.  

KEEP RIGHT TO ACCESS ALL BALTIMORE EXITS.

 

WHEN: Tuesday, July 22 (starting after 9 p.m.) continuously through late August.  All dates and times are approximate and dependent on weather.

 

WHY: Toll Dollars At Work 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.

 

Currently, traffic lanes on southbound I-95 split around the work zone between MD 295 and the I-395 on-ramp: all three lanes to the left.  This condition will remain until mid-August.  In addition, the ramp from southbound I-395 to southbound I-95 exiting Baltimore City is reduced to one lane continuously (24/7). Only one lane is open to traffic until mid-August.  Use the following alternate routes when exiting downtown:

  • Key Highway to McComas Street to northbound and southbound I-95;
  • Russell Street to southbound I-95;
  • Washington Boulevard to southbound I-95; and
  • Lombard Street to Monroe Street to Wilkens Avenue to Caton Avenue to southbound I-95.
