Lane Closures I-95/I-695 Interchange


May 7, 2024

Dear Subscriber,


From State Highway Administration:




(May 7, 2024) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration is continuing its $39.8 million work to rehabilitate 10 bridges at the I-95/I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) interchange in the Arbutus area of Baltimore County. 

On Wednesday, May 8 there will be a single-lane closure on southbound I-95 at 7 p.m., a double lane closure at 9 p.m. and a triple lane closure at midnight, the three lanes will be closed until 5 a.m. Thursday.  The overnight triple-lane closure and ramp closure will allow crews to shift the traffic pattern in the work zone to prepare for the next phase of work.      

Drivers should expect major overnight delays on the southwest I-695 interchange with I-95 in Arbutus. Overnight ramp and lane closures are scheduled as follows.   


During lane and ramp closures, motorists are advised to plan for extra travel time and consider alternate routes. Crews will use digital message boards, temporary signs and barrels to direct drivers safely through the nighttime work zone. MDOT SHA contractor Wagman Heavy Civil Inc., of York, Pa., will perform the work.  

The larger project will install new riding surfaces on bridges within the I-95 / I-695 interchange, and also will replace concrete traffic barriers and parapets on the bridges. For additional information about the project, click here. ​Customers with questions about this project or other construction work on state-maintained roads in Baltimore County may call the MDOT SHA District 4 Office – Construction Division at 410-229-2300 or toll-free at 1-866-998-0367.   

To improve work zone safety, MDOT SHA has deployed Maryland SafeZones Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras are deployed along I-95 at the I-695 interchange work area. SafeZones mobile enforcement vehicles rotate among designated construction zones along controlled-access highways with posted speed limits of 45 mph or higher. Crews place large signs in advance of the work zones to alert drivers of automated speed enforcement use. A speed trailer displaying the posted speed limit and drivers’ speeds in advance of the enforcement vehicle will be on site.  

Maryland State Police will review and authorize citations. By law, if a vehicle is recorded traveling at or above a specified rate over the posted speed limit, a $40 fine will be issued to the vehicle's registered owner. The posted speed is 55 mph in this area.  

Speeding violations have decreased by more than 90% in areas where the SafeZones program is deployed. Nationally, four out of five people injured in a work zone crash are passengers or drivers, not workers. ASE is currently deployed in eight other work zones in Maryland.

Maryland’s Move Over Law requires motorists to make a lane change or slow down when approaching any stopped, standing, or parked vehicle displaying hazard warning lights, road flares, or other caution signals. The expanded law is in place to protect emergency responders and motorists who encounter a roadside emergency. 

MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our customers. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on driving and look for reduced speed limits as well as other driving pattern changes. Please drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones. Motorists in need may dial #77 on their mobile device for roadside assistance.
