REVISED: Southbound MD-295 Closure is Scheduled for this Weekend
Friday Aug 28th, 2020
Due to possible rain on Saturday, southbound MD-295 may remain closed through 5:00 a.m. on Monday, August 31st if needed; Temporary traffic stops will also occur Saturday along northbound MD-295
The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists that a portion of southbound MD-295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway) is scheduled to be closed this weekend, August 28-31, 2020. This closure of southbound MD-295 is necessary to erect concrete beams for the new Annapolis Road Bridge.
Beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, August 28, 2020, southbound MD-295 will be closed to through traffic between Bush Street and I-695 with detours in effect, weather permitting. This portion of southbound MD-295 was originally scheduled to be reopened to traffic by 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 30, 2020, but due to the possibility of rain this weekend, the closure of southbound MD-295 may be extended until 5:00 a.m. on Monday, August 31, 2020 if needed.
In addition to the southbound closure, a single lane closure will be implemented along northbound MD-295 throughout the day on Saturday, August 29, 2020 so that the new bridge beams can be set safely in place. Temporary traffic stops along northbound MD-295 of approximately 5-10 minutes each will also be implemented Saturday between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. as concrete beams are lifted over the travel lanes. Motorists should plan for delays and traffic congestion if traveling along northbound MD-295 this Saturday during these times.
During the southbound closure, all southbound Russell Street traffic destined for MD-295 will be detoured onto I-95 south. The weekend closure of southbound MD-295 and Saturday’s lane closures/temporary traffic stops along northbound MD-295 may cause congestion and delays. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead for the closure by allowing additional travel time and using alternate routes.
