Expect construction at Interstate 95 and White Marsh Boulevard, also known as Maryland Route 43, to last at least another two years.
The I-95 Express Toll Lanes project at MD 43 is underway, the Maryland Transportation Authority announced this week.
This portion of the project involves widening I-95, replacing the MD 43 bridges over I-95 and attaching 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, according to an MDTA release.
The White Marsh portion of the project comes at a $142.6 million cost and is expected to create 400 new jobs, officials stated.
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.
