I-95 S to close overnight Thurs.

By Michael D. Bolden

The Maryland State Highway Administration plans to close all lanes of Interstate 95 southbound between Caton Avenue (Exit 50) and I-695 (Exit 49) between 11 p.m. Thursday and 4 a.m. Friday for short intervals.

State officials said the total closures will be for 15-minute periods as crews install a large overhead sign as part of a project to widen and reconfigure the I-95 ramps to westbound I-695.

Closures will began as early as 7 tonight, with crews closing one lane. Two lanes will close by 9 p.m. The total closure will then begin at intervals after 11. Officials also said that the ramps from southbound 95 to east and westbound 695 will also be temporarily closed as crews hang the sign.

The State Highway Administration recommends using Caton Avenue to Wilkins Avenue or Washington Boulevard to I-695 as alternates.
