Planned lane closures will be suspended on state roads this weekend to avoid delaying travelers heading to holiday destinations.
Though there are no scheduled lane closures for Friday, Saturday or Sunday, according to State Highway Administration spokesman Charlie Gischlar, workers will respond to urgent situations.
"If there's an emergency, that's a different story," Gischlar said.
The Md. 140 bridge project near the Baltimore County line has used a zipper machine to shift concrete lane dividers during rush hour since April and will continue to shift lanes to accommodate traffic, Gischlar said.
"It's going to be like a normal Monday-to-Friday operation," he said.
For the morning rush hour, two lanes for eastbound traffic will be available between 5 and 9 a.m., according to an SHA news release. In the evening, two lanes for westbound traffic will be available from 3 to 7 p.m.
Along with suspending lane closures, SHA will have patrols out on major roads to assist with disabled vehicles and crashes, according to Gischlar.
