Night work is expected to disrupt traffic in the White Marsh area late Sunday night into Monday morning.
Weather permitting, between 10 p.m. on Jan. 27 and 5 a.m. on Jan. 28, Exit 67B from southbound Interstate 95 to westbound Maryland Route 43 (White Marsh Boulevard) will be temporarily closed, Maryland Transportation Authority officials announced.
A detour will direct drivers to eastbound MD Route 43 (Exit 67A), to eastbound MD 7, to westbound MD 43.
The work is part of the ongoing I-95 Express Toll Lanes Project.
The White Marsh portion of the project carries a $142.6 million price tag and is expected to create 400 new jobs. The total project, which stretches from north of White Marsh along I-95 to south of the Interstate 895/Moravia Road interchange, will cost $1.03 billion and is expected to be finished by 2014, according to the MdTA.
The ultimate goal of the project is to provide additional highway lanes, where drivers can avoid some I-95 traffic back-ups. When complete, drivers may travel on existing lanes of I-95 at no additional cost, or may use express lanes by paying a toll.
