New traffic pattern on I-95 north begins this week as highway improvements continue between Harford and Baltimore counties

Starting this week, the Maryland Transportation Authority is shifting northbound Interstate 95 at the Maryland Route 152 interchange (Exit 74) in a new traffic pattern as part of its ongoing $1.1 billion program to relieve congestion and improve travel along the highway between Baltimore and Harford counties, according to a news release.

This shift is expected to begin Thursday and continue through June 2023. Traffic will split with two lanes to the left and two lanes to the right of the work zone separated by a barrier on northbound I-95 between mile marker 73 and mile marker 75.


Motorists exiting at Maryland Route 152/Mountain Road (Exit 74) must stay in the right two lanes as they approach mile marker 73. Northbound I-95 access will continue from all four travel lanes within the split pattern.

Temporary signs will be installed to direct motorists approaching the traffic split. Motorists can expect ground-mounted roadway signs and portable changeable message signs to inform them of the new traffic pattern prior to the switch.
