9/25/2012BGE REPAIRS GAS LINE UNDER RAMP FROM INNER LOOP I-695 TO EASTBOUND SECURITY BOULEVARD AT NIGHT BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 26
(September 24, 2012) –Beginning 9 p.m. Wednesday, September 26, Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) and the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will temporarily close the ramp from the inner loop of I-695 to eastbound Security Boulevard (MD 122) on weeknights for approximately one month.  The weeknight ramp closure and detour will allow BGE crews to repair a gas line underneath the ramp.  The ramp closure will be in effect Sunday through Thursday nights, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next morning.
    
Motorists traveling from northbound I-695 to eastbound Security Boulevard on weeknights will be directed to the following detour: take Exit 17 for Security Boulevard; stay left on the ramp and proceed to westbound Security Boulevard; proceed west past Belmont Avenue, Lord Baltimore Drive, North Rolling Road; at the end of the highway, make a U-turn onto eastbound Security Boulevard. Proceed on eastbound Security Boulevard.      
Motorists traveling from northbound I-695 to Woodlawn, Dickeyville, Baltimore City and other destinations east of I-695 should plan ahead for extra travel time on weeknights during the next month. 
BGE will not interrupt gas service to its customers in the area during the repair work.  For more information about the BGE gas line repair work, BGE customers may contact BGE through its website, www.bge.com or by phone at 410-685-0123 or toll-free 1-800-685-0123.  Weather permitting, the BGE gas line work will be complete late October.
