New I-95 entrance ramp at Route 198 opens Sunday

As part of the ongoing construction of the Intercounty Connector near Laurel, eastbound traffic on Route 198 from West Laurel and Burtonsville will be shifted to a new ramp for access to southbound Interstate 95 beginning Sunday, State Highway Administration officials announced Friday.

Traffic from east and westbound Route 198 will now merge before entering southbound I-95, but the through travel lanes of I-95 will not be affected, SHA officials said.

The traffic shift is required because of construction of new ICC collector-distributor lanes. SHA officials said the ICC section between I-95 and Route 1 is expected to open next spring.
