Motorists can expect several lane closures on the inner and outer loops of I-695 through Friday morning, weather permitting.
Crews will close one lane at 8 p.m., from Route 40 to Frederick Road, through Thursday night with multiple closures overnight from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. to install traffic-counting devices along the I-695 outer loop.
