July 15-19: Express Toll Lanes White Marsh Closures

Watch for detours in the White Marsh area.

The is slated to cause another round of lane closures.

From 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., each day between July 15 and July 19, "all lanes of eastbound Interstate 695 (INNER LOOP) at Interstate 95 (Exit 33) will be completely closed. Traffic will be detoured off Exit 33 to northbound I-95, to westbound MD 43 (Exit 67B, White Marsh Boulevard), to southbound I-95, to eastbound I-695 (Exit 64)," according to a Maryland Transportation Authority press release.

The ultimate goal of the project is to attach planned toll lanes to MD 43. When complete, drivers may travel on existing lanes of I-95 at no additional cost, or may use express lanes by paying a toll.

The White Marsh portion of the project comes at a $142.6 million cost 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, comes at a $1.03 billion cost and is expected to be finished by 2014, according to the transportation authority.

Real-time traffic camera images of state roadways are available at mdta.maryland.gov. Travel information is also available by calling 511 or visiting md511.org.

Not liking the new traffice lights on MD 43. Have hit a red light every morning on the way to work, and every evening on the way home since they were installed!
