Hearing on I-95 congestion set for tomorrow

A hearing will be held tomorrow to discuss alleviating traffic congestion on Interstate 95. One of the proposals being considered includes express toll lanes.

The 10-mile stretch of highway being discussed begins at the I-95 and Interstate 895 split and ends north of White Marsh Boulevard (Route 43).


Conducted by the Maryland Transportation Authority, the hearing will be from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Perry Hall Middle School, 4300 Ebenezer Road.

From 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., residents can review materials and displays. An overview of the project and proposals will be given at 7 p.m. From 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., residents can comment on the proposals.


Three proposals will be discussed. The first calls for simple maintenance procedures and safety measures.

The second would require adding two lanes to the existing four on both sides of the highway.

The third proposal would add two lanes that would be separated from existing lanes and managed in some fashion, such as with express toll lanes.
