Traffic Advisory: Lane Closure on I-695 Inner Loop Begins May 20

(WEAA)— Beginning on Monday, May 20, drivers can expect delays along the inner loop of I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) between I-70 and I-83 (Baltimore-Harrisburg Expressway).

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration says it will close the right lane from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to perform rumble strip removal and shoulder patching work.

MDOT SHA expects the work to last for one month, depending upon weather conditions.

Following completion of the inner loop, crews will begin work on the outer loop of I-695 with similar single-lane closures expected to be finished by mid-June.

The construction is part of the Maryland State Highway Administration’s project to improve reliability and reduce congestion along I-695 between I-70 and MD 43 (White Marsh Boulevard).

According to officials, the project includes converting portions of the existing median shoulder to a travel lane in an effort to reduce congestion, improve safety and offer time savings for morning and evening commuters traveling between Catonsville and Overlea.
