Crews will use digital message boards, temporary signs and barrels to direct drivers safely through the nighttime work zone. MDOT SHA contractor Wagman Heavy Civil Inc., of York, Pa., will perform the work.   

The work is part of a larger project that includes the installation of new riding surfaces on bridges within the I-95 / I-695 interchange. For additional information about the project, click here.   

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 all motorists who encounter a roadside emergency.
