Parts of I-97 to close for construction


Road construction will force the closure of parts of northbound and southbound Interstate 97 between Route 3 (New Cut Road) and the Baltimore Beltway through Sunday.

The construction will take place along I-97 in the vicinity of the Wellham Avenue bridge, about one-half mile north of Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard. Work will run from 8 p.m. today to 6 a.m. tomorrow and continue from 8 p.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday.

The closures are necessary to ensure safety during the installation of structural steel for the new Wellham Avenue bridge.

Motorists are advised to use such alternate routes as Routes 648, 2 or 10.
