WEEKEND RIGHT LANE CLOSURES ON

SOUTHBOUND I-895 AT K-TRUSS BRIDGE CONTINUE

Expect Delays & Use Alternate Routes

 

WHAT: The right lane on southbound I-895 after the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel toll plaza and across the K-Truss Bridge will be closed temporarily to traffic.  Motorists should use I-695/Key Bridge or I-95/Fort McHenry Tunnel as alternate routes.

WHEN: Weather permitting, every weekend from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, from June 3 through mid-October.  No closures will occur 4th of July or Labor Day weekend.  Lane closures will be lifted two hours before and after Baltimore Orioles and Ravens home games.

WHY: Toll Dollars At Work: The closures are part of the Maryland Transportation Authority's (MDTA) one-year, $6.1 million project to repair the K-Truss bridge approach spans.  The current work on I-895 involves replacing the finger joints.
