Northbound MD-295 Scheduled to Close This Weekend

Temporary traffic stops and lane closures will also occur along southbound MD-295

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation (BCDOT) would like to advise motorists that a portion of northbound MD-295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway) is scheduled to be closed this weekend, September 18-21, 2020.  This closure of northbound MD-295 is necessary to erect concrete beams for the new Annapolis Road Bridge.

Beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, September 18, 2020, northbound MD-295 will be closed to through traffic between I-695 and Bush Street with detours in effect, weather permitting.  This portion of northbound MD-295 will be reopened to traffic by 5:00 a.m. on Monday, September 21, 2020.

In addition to the northbound closure, a single lane closure will be implemented along southbound MD-295 throughout the day on Saturday, September 19, 2020 so that the new bridge beams can be set safely in place.  Temporary traffic stops along southbound 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 southbound MD-295 during this time.

During the northbound closure, all northbound MD-295 traffic will be diverted onto I-695 to I-95 north.  The weekend closure of northbound MD-295 and Saturday’s lane closures/temporary traffic stops along southbound 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.
