The State Highway Administration will begin removing a concrete barrier on the Baltimore Beltway Tuesday evening. The traffic barrier removal work is part of the widening of the Interstate 695 outer loop between south of Route 40 and Frederick Road in Catonsville.
For the next two weeks, motorists can expect single lane closures on I-695 between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. to allow crews to remove the concrete traffic barrier.
Crews are working on the following schedule, weather permitting:
I-695 inner loop: Left lane closure between Frederick Road (MD 144) and Route 40: Tuesday and Sunday
I-695 outer loop: Left lane closure between Route 40 and the area south of Frederick Road: Tuesday through Thursday; and Monday through March 31
I-695 inner loop: Right lane closure between Edmondson Avenue and Route 40: April 1
Drivers should be aware of reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes, according to the SHA.
