SPLIT TRAFFIC PATTERNS ON NORTHBOUND I-95 IN BALTIMORE BY TOMORROW MORNING
24/7 Left-Lane Closure Continues On Northbound I-95 Between Caton & Russell
WHAT: The left lane on northbound I-95 between Exit 50 (Caton Avenue) and Exit 52 (Russell Street) remains continuously closed (24/7). The remaining three northbound I-95 traffic lanes will split with two lanes to the left and one lane to the right in this area. Exit 51 (Washington Boulevard) will reopen and the detour will no longer be in effect. To use Exit 51, you MUST use the right lane prior to the split. REMINDER: To exit at Russell Street, motorists should follow signs to use Exit 50 (Caton Avenue), keep left on the ramp, continue to northbound I-95, and exit at Russell Street.
WHEN: Weather permitting, the northbound I-95 split will be in effect by Tuesday, July 7, for approximately two weeks.
WHY: Toll Dollars At Work: The split traffic pattern is part of the Maryland Transportation Authority's (MDTA) two-year, $64 million project to remove and replace the existing concrete deck (riding) surface and roadway joints on mainline I-95 and ramps in Baltimore City.
REMINDER: Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) equipment is deployed on northbound I-95 between Exit 50 (Caton Avenue) and the Fort McHenry Tunnel. The work-zone speed limit is 50 mph on northbound and southbound I-95.
