Transportation Act Delivers Project to Replace Two Bridges and Improve Access to Inner Loop of I-695

The two bridges along the Inner Loop of I-695 that will be replaced were built in 1957 as part of the original construction of the Baltimore Beltway. Both bridges are nearing the end of their service life. The new structures will carry the same number of through lanes along the Inner Loop, though they will be wide enough to accommodate future widening of I-695.

Work Zone Safety

Hundreds of state employees, contractors and sub-contractors are in work zones delivering projects ranging from paving, bridge rehabilitation and regular maintenance as well as major roadway projects such as the Intercounty Connector. While SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes.
