Weekend Road Closures for April 26-28, 2019

Full Closure of MD-295

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists that a weekend closure of MD-295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway) and traffic pattern changes are scheduled to begin Friday, April 26th, 2019 as part of the Triple Bridges Replacement Project.  A complete closure of MD-295 is necessary for the demolition of the Annapolis Road Bridge superstructure.

Beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, April 26, 2019, both north and southbound MD-295 will be closed to through traffic between Bush Street and I-695 with detours in effect.  This portion of MD 295 will remain closed throughout the weekend for bridge demolition activities, and will be reopened to traffic by 5:00 a.m. on Monday, April 29, 2019.

During the closure, all southbound Russell Street traffic destined for MD-295 will be detoured onto I-95 south, and all northbound MD-295 traffic will be diverted onto I-695 to I-95 north.  While this portion of MD-295 is closed for demolition activities, various access ramps to MD-295 will also be closed to prevent traffic from approaching the work zone, including:

  • Southbound I-95 ramp to MD-295 south
  • Eastbound Monroe Street ramp to MD-295 south
  • Manokin Street ramp to MD-295 south
  • Annapolis Road ramp to MD-295 south
  • I-695 exit ramps to MD-295 north

An illustrated map showing the MD-295 closure, along with the various ramp closures and detour routes can be found by clicking here.

The weekend closure of MD-295 may cause congestion and delays on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and along the detour routes.  Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead for the closure by allowing additional travel time and using alternate routes into and out of Baltimore City.

Once MD-295 reopens on Monday, April 29th, full-time single lane closures will be in effect along both northbound and southbound MD-295 in the vicinity of the Annapolis Road Bridge.  This portion of MD-295 will be reduced to two lanes of travel in each direction through the Fall of 2020.  These lane reductions will cause congestion and delays along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, so citizens are encouraged to allow additional commute time and use alternate routes to avoid delays.

Detours during the MD 295 closure:

  • Southbound MD-295/Russell Street traffic will be detoured onto I-95 South.
  • Northbound MD-295 that is destined for Baltimore City will be detoured onto I-695 west to I-95 North to Russell Street.

A full list of suggested detour routes during the MD-295 closure and various ramp closures can be found on the project website by clicking here.  For project information and updates, citizens can visit 295TripleBridges.com.
