Separate crashes that shut down Interstate 95 in both directions near the Caton Avenue exit for nearly two hours on Tuesday morning have been cleared, according to state transportation departments.
The Baltimore City Office of Emergency Management said the crash in the northbound lanes involved two tractor-trailers, with one leaking fuel. The state Department of Transportation said the southbound crash involved three vehicles.
At 8:02 a.m. the Maryland Transportation Authority reported that the southbound crash had been cleared and then reported the northbound crash cleared 15 minutes later. Motorists should still anticipate significant delays due to backup resulting from the crashes, officials said.
At 8:25 a.m., a disabled vehicle on I-95 North past the Caton Avenue in Baltimore City exit blocked the northbound right shoulder at 8:25 a.m., DOT said.
In other traffic incidents, a disabled vehicle on the inner loop of I-697 at I-97 in Brooklyn Park has closed the inner loop right off-ramp at 8:58 a.m., DOT said.
And emergency roadwork on MD 25 North in Pikesville at Greenspring Valley Road that began on Monday morning continues to block the northbound right traffic lane and northbound right shoulder on Tuesday, DOT said.
