WHAT: All traffic lanes on southbound I-395 (leaving Baltimore City) will shift to the right of the work area between the Howard Street on-ramp and the I-95 split.

The left lane on southbound I-395 will be temporarily closed between the Howard Street on-ramp and the I-95 split.

WHEN: Weather permitting, the southbound I-395 shift will be in effect by Tuesday, Nov. 3, for approximately two weeks.

Weather permitting, the southbound I-395 left lane closure will occur Friday, Nov. 6, at 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday, Nov. 9.
