The closure is necessary for SHA to perform the second phase of MD 201 Bridge maintenance and beam repairs which began in late April.
Beginning Sunday night, May 23, repairs will take place between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Double lane closures will begin at 10 p.m. and up to three lanes may be closed after midnight. Weather permitting, work will be complete no later than 5 a.m. Friday morning, May 28.
Motorists will be able to access the ramps at the I-95/I-495/MD 201 interchange and the left lane of northbound I-495. To avoid potential delays, suggested alternate routes are US 29, US 1, MD 295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway), MD 193 and MD 198.
SHA reminds all drivers to buckle up, obey posted speed limits, think “orange” while driving through the work zone and stay alert.
