WHAT: The ramp from southbound I-95 to southbound MD 295 (Exit 52) will be closed temporarily to traffic. The far right exit lane on southbound I-95 leading to Exit 52 will also be closed. There still will be three main travel lanes open on southbound I-95. I-395 (Exit 53) also remains open.

The detour route will direct motorists to Exit 53, to Russell Street/southbound MD 295.

WHEN: Weather permitting, Friday, Aug. 14, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 17.

WHY: Toll Dollars At Work: The ramp closure 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: Work-zone speed limits on northbound and southbound I-95 are reduced to 50 mph. Work-zone safety speed cameras in use.
