Repair work on I-95 in Arbutus begins

Motorists using Interstate-95 in southwestern Baltimore County between the Howard County line and Baltimore should be on alert for pavement repair work throughout the fall.

The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) warns that lane closures on the interstate could be in effect from early evening throughout the night during the week.

Single lane closures may begin at 7 p.m., with double lane closures beginning at 9 p.m. and ending by 5 a.m. the next day. Triple lane closures, if necessary, may occur between midnight and 4 a.m.

Crews will work be working weeknights, as temperatures permit, through the fall. The work will begin on northbound I-95 at the Howard County line and proceed north toward Baltimore City.

Once the work is complete on northbound I-95 crews will begin work on the south side.

If temperatures do not permit work to be completed by winter, crews will resume work next spring.

Crews will patch sections of damaged pavement along I-95 and will resurface lanes approaching the bridges carrying I-95 over:

• Patapsco River (Baltimore County side);

• I-195 (Metropolitan Boulevard);

• Oakland Road; Carville and Oregon avenues;

• US 1 (Southwestern Boulevard), AMTRAK/MARC, and Potomac Avenue;

• Sulphur Spring Road;

• I-695 (Baltimore Beltway), including interchange ramps.

SHA recommends that travelers plan ahead for extra travel time and anticipate late night travel delays.

The I-95 pavement repair work is part of SHA's $5.8 million project to improve safety and ride quality along interstate routes within Baltimore County.

The county-wide project is expected to be completed in fall 2014.
