24/7 TWO-WAY TRAFFIC ON I-895 NEAR BALTIMORE/WASHINGTON PARKWAY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jan. 27, 2017

 

24/7 TWO-WAY TRAFFIC ON I-895 NEAR BALTIMORE/WASHINGTON PARKWAY

One Lane of Opposing Traffic on Northbound & Southbound I-895

Follow #i895bmore and @TheMDTA on Twitter

WHAT: Two-way traffic (one adjacent lane in each direction) will operate 24/7 on I-895 across the Patapsco Flats bridge. Crews will close the northbound bridge, and two-way traffic will operate on the southbound bridge. Only one lane will be open across the bridge in each direction, separated by barrier. Motorists should use I-95/Fort McHenry Tunnel as an alternate route during peak travel times.

  Flast1-27

Note: The traffic pattern will change on northbound I-895 before the work zone. The current left lane closure will change to a right lane closure approaching the work area.

Note: The traffic pattern remains the same on southbound I-895 before the work zone. 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).

WHEN: Weather permitting, the new traffic pattern will be in effect by afternoon rush hour on Monday, Jan. 30, and remain in place for approximately one year.

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 Flats.
