Triple-Lane Closure in Effect Through Early Friday Morning; Motorists Should Plan for Extra Travel Time or Use Alternate Routes​

​(January 5, 2023) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will perform emergency bridge deck repairs beginning 8 p.m. Thursday, January 5, on the southbound I-95 bridge over westbound I-195 (Metropolitan Boulevard) in southwestern Baltimore County. The work will necessitate a triple-lane closure on southbound I-95. Motorists are urged to plan extra commuting time. From 8 p.m. Thursday through 5 a.m. Friday, January 6, crews will repair a damaged joint on the bridge deck (riding surface). This work will require three of four lanes on southbound I-95 near  I-195 to be closed.  

The lanes will be closed on the following overnight schedule: 
a single right lane closed at 8 p.m.; 
two right lanes closed at 10 p.m.; and 
three right lanes closed midnight until 5 a.m. Friday. 

During the closure, all traffic on southbound I-95 will be directed to use the left lane(s). The interchange ramps to and from I-195 and MD 166 (Rolling Road) will remain open during the overnight repair work. Maryland’s Move Over Law requires motorists to make a lane change or slow down when approaching any stopped, standing, or parked vehicle displaying hazard warning lights, road flares, or other caution signals. 

The expanded law is in place to protect emergency responders and motorists who encounter a roadside emergency. Motorists in need may dial #77 on their mobile device for roadside assistance.
