I-95 Construction To Alter Lanes Until June 2023
BALTIMORE COUNTY - Northern I-95 will shift to a new traffic pattern as the MTA continues its ongoing $1.1 billion program to relieve congestion and improve travel between Baltimore and Harford Counties.
Assuming no weather delays, starting on Thursday, northbound I-95 at the MD 152 interchange (Exit 74) will split with two lanes to the left and two lanes to the right of the work zone separated by a barrier. The split pattern will allow crews a safe work zone to continue construction of the new MD 152 overpass as part of the overall reconstruction of the I-95/MD 152 interchange. The new split will be in place until June 2023.
Motorists exiting at MD 152/Mountain Road (Exit 74) MUST stay in the right two lanes as they approach mile marker 73. Northbound I-95 access will continue from all four travel lanes within the split pattern.
The I-95 corridor is notorious for its traffic, with northbound Friday afternoon travel delays of up to 20 minutes and queues of up to nine miles.
MDTA hopes this project will alleviate some of the congestion drivers experience as they travel from Baltimore County areas such as Rosedale and White Marsh to Havre de Grace, Wilmington, and beyond.
Temporary signs will be installed to direct motorists approaching the traffic split. MDTA expects the construction to exacerbate traffic until completion, and motorists should expect significant delays when approaching Exit 74. Due to the new traffic pattern, motorists should use extra caution while approaching the area.
