REVISED: Full Closure of MD-295 Scheduled for This Weekend, August 20-22, 2021

Weekend closure will be implemented starting at midnight on Friday for demolition of the Waterview Avenue Bridge and Maisel Street Pedestrian Bridge over MD-295

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists that a full closure of MD-295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway) is scheduled for this weekend, August 20-22, 2021 as part of the Triple Bridges Replacement Project.  The complete closure of MD-295 is needed for bridge demolition activities.

Beginning at approximately 11:59 p.m. (midnight) on Friday, August 20, 2021, both north and southbound MD-295 will be closed to through traffic between Bush Street and I-695 with detours in effect, weather permitting.  This portion of MD 295 will remain closed throughout the weekend, and will be reopened to traffic by 5:00 a.m. on Monday, August 23, 2021 or earlier if possible.

Motorists heading south of the city following the Orioles game on Friday, August 20th, should be advised that the southbound lanes of MD-295 will remain open until midnight.  After this time, motorists should utilize the southbound I-95 detour route until all lanes of MD-295 are reopened to traffic following the weekend demolition work.

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, 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

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.

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, along with project information and updates can be found at 295TripleBridges.com.
