24/7 RIGHT LANE CLOSURE ON SOUTHBOUND I-895 NEAR BALTIMORE/WASHINGTON PARKWAY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Aug. 1, 2016

 

24/7 RIGHT LANE CLOSURE ON SOUTHBOUND I-895

NEAR BALTIMORE/WASHINGTON PARKWAY

Follow #i895bmore and @TheMDTA on Twitter

Use I-95 as Alternate Route

 

WHAT: The right lane on southbound I-895 across the Patapsco Flats bridge will be closed continuously (24/7). Only one lane will be open across the bridge. Motorists should use I-95/Fort McHenry Tunnel as an alternate route during peak travel times.

Note: The right lane on northbound I-895 across the Patapsco Flats bridge remains closed 24/7.

New Traffic Pattern: Southbound I-895 traffic approaching the work zone must use the left lane to remain on I-895 and must use the right lane for Exit 6 (I-97 and MD 2 spur road).

WHEN: Weather permitting, the 24/7 right lane closure on southbound I-895 will be in effect by Thursday morning, Aug. 4, until the first project stage is complete this fall.  Closure originally scheduled for Aug. 3, has been rescheduled for this date

Note: When the first stage is complete, the northbound and southbound right lanes will reopen, and the left lanes then will be closed continuously.

WHY: Toll Dollars At Work: The closure is part of the Maryland Transportation Authority's (MDTA) three-year, $48.5 million project to replace the deck and superstructure for the bridge carrying I-895 over the Patapsco River Flats.
