CHANGES TO SPLIT TRAFFIC PATTERN THROUGH

WORK ZONE ON NORTHBOUND I-95 IN BALTIMORE CITY

Right lane must exit at Russell Street or I-395

NewNB3r1l

 

  

WHAT:       Four traffic lanes will NOW split around the work zone on northbound I-95 between south of the Russell Street exit ramp and the I-395 exit ramp: three lanes to the left and one lane to the right.

Motorists in the three left lanes will NOT have access to Exit 52 (Russell Street).  Motorists in the left lanes will be able to access Exits 53 (Northbound I-395) and 55 (Key Highway).  Motorists in the right lane MUST exit at Exit 52 (Russell Street) or Exit 53 (Northbound I-395). 

Northbound I-95 Exit 54 (Hanover Street) remains closed continuously – the detour route directs motorists to Exit 55 (Key Highway), to McComas Street, to Hanover Street.  In addition, the on-ramp from MD 295/Russell Street to northbound I-95 remains closed continuously – the detour route directs motorists to Russell Street Service Drive, to southbound I-395, to northbound I-95. 

Motorists should consider the Francis Scott Key Bridge (I-695) or the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I-895) if their destinations are north or south of Baltimore.

WHEN:       The changes to the northbound I-95 split pattern will take effect on Sunday, September 21 (starting after 9 a.m.), continuously through mid-October.  The MD 295/Russell Street on-ramp and Hanover Street exit will remain closed continuously until mid-October.  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 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.

Currently on southbound I-95, four traffic lanes split around the work zone between the Fort McHenry Tunnel and the I-395 on-ramp: one lane to the left and three lanes to the right.  This condition will remain until mid-October.

***TRAFFIC ALERT***

CREWS TO TEMPORARILY CLOSE TWO LANES OF EASTBOUND MD 200 (ICC) BETWEEN US 29 AND I-95 NEXT FOUR WEEKENDS

Contractor Will Improve Pavement for Long-Term Durability

(September 18, 2014) Beginning 8 p.m. Friday, September 19, and over the next four weekends, crews will close two lanes of eastbound Intercounty Connector (ICC)/MD 200 between US 29 (Columbia Pike) and I-95. One through lane will remain open to traffic and all lanes will re-open by 5 a.m. Monday morning of each weekend.  The closures allow crews to repair the pavement in this section of the highway.

The ramp from Briggs Chaney Road to eastbound MD 200 will also be closed to traffic during the weekend repair work as needed. Motorists who normally access eastbound MD 200 from Briggs Chaney Road should follow the posted detour, which is west on Briggs Chaney Road to southbound US 29 and then to eastbound MD 200.  Portable message signs will be used to advise motorist about the ramp closure and guide motorists through the work zone.

The work and continuous double lane closures are necessary to improve the durability of the roadway. After observing depressions on the eastbound lanes of the ICC, the State Highway Administration and the Maryland Transportation Authority determined there is an underlying moisture issue below the roadway. The construction contractor for the ICC will remove and replace the underlying material and repave the area at no additional cost to the State.

While SHA and its partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and dont follow too closely. Safer Driving. Safer Work Zones. For everyone!
