Watch for Upcoming Night Work on I-95

Early morning Monday, the Maryland State Highway Administration will temporarily close all lanes of I-95 between Route 198 and Route 212 for 15-minute intervals. The closings will repeat periodically through the spring as the state builds three bridges over I-95 for the Intercounty Connector.

These 15-minute closings will occur between midnight and 4:30 a.m. on northbound I-95 and between midnight and 3:30 a.m. on the southbound side. Each night, there could be up to four closings.

In addition to the complete shutdowns, the project may also close one or two lanes of I-95 between exit 33 and exit 29 Sunday nights through Friday mornings.On the northbound side, that would be from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. On the southbound side, it would be from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

While these bridges are being built, workers also will be demolishing and rebuilding the Old Gunpowder Road Bridge over the Interstate. The contractor will maintain traffic on the bridge by shifting lanes and rebuilding one-half of the structure at a time, the highway administration says.

Construction work on the Old Gunpowder Road occurs Mondays through Fridays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Flagging crews are alternating traffic on the road during these off-peak daytime hours.

When you're on the highway, look for the latest construction information on the electronic message signs. They will have alerts about the lane closings.

Also, if you're driving north-south in those early morning hours, consider taking the Baltimore Washington Parkway or Route 1 as an alternative to I-95.
