Construction-related closures are continuing this week with work along the inner and outer loop between Route 40 and Route 144 near Catonsville.
The State Highway Administration recently began installing traffic-counting devices on the Baltimore Beltway in order to monitor traffic flow and volume. This week, crews will work 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Friday, closing a shoulder and/or a single lane along Interstate 695.
Crews will also remove temporary work zone barriers and clean highway drainage system inlets and pipes in addition to the traffic-counting devices, according to a news release.
The work is part of widening of this section of I-695. Drivers should be aware of reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes, according to the SHA.
