Underground pipe work to result in traffic changes on I -695, US 1

A series of underground pipe cleanings and repairs will result in shoulder closures and changes in traffic patterns on I-695 and US 1 this week.

The State Highway Authority's work on the underground pipes that carry Dead Run beneath the Baltimore Beltway started today and will result in shoulder closures on I-695 and traffic shifts along the on- and off-ramps at exit 17, MD 122 (Security Boulevard).

The shifts will be in effect between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays and 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday–Thursday.

Beginning Wednesday, July 27, the SHA will be cleaning and repairing underground pipes that carry a tributary of Herbert Run beneath US 1 (Southwestern Boulevard).

As a result, there also will be shoulder closures along US 1 between the Halethorpe MARC station and US 1 Alternate (Washington Boulevard) from 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays and 7 p.m. – 5 a.m. Sunday – Thursday.

Weather permitting, both repair projects will continue through early fall.

The work is part of a $1.8 million project to clean and repair SHA's underground pipe systems statewide, with the aim of maintaining structural integrity of the systems.

The SHA asks that drivers please adhere to posted traffic laws and stay alert to keep workers safe.
