9/27/2012SHA TO REPAIR PAVEMENT ON I-95 IN SOUTHWESTERN BALTIMORE COUNTY ON WEEKNIGHTS FALL 2012
The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) is beginning pavement repair work along I-95 in southwestern Baltimore County this Sunday night.  Crews will work along I-95 between the Howard/Baltimore County line and the Baltimore County/City line weeknights as temperatures permit through late fall. 
 
SHA recommends that travelers plan ahead for extra travel time and anticipate late night travel delays.  Single lane closures along I-95 may begin at 7 p.m., with double lane closures beginning at 9 p.m. and ending by 5 a.m. the next morning.  When necessary, triple lane closures may occur between midnight and 4 a.m.
 
During pavement repair work, crews will patch sections of damaged pavement along I-95 and will resurface lanes approaching the bridges carrying I-95 over the following: Patapsco River (Baltimore County side); I-195 (Metropolitan Boulevard); Oakland Road; Carville and Oregon avenues; US 1 (Southwestern Boulevard), AMTRAK/MARC, and Potomac Avenue; Sulphur Spring Road; and I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) mainline and interchange ramps.  
 
Crews will begin on northbound I-95  at the Howard County line and proceed north toward Baltimore City.  Once the work is complete on northbound I-95  crews will begin work on the south side.  If temperatures do not permit work in late fall and winter, crews will temporarily shut down for the winter and resume work next spring.
 
The I-95 pavement repair work is part of SHA’s $5.8 million project to improve safety and ride quality along interstate routes within Baltimore County. The State’s Contractor is Gray and Son, Inc. of Timonium.  The entire county-wide project will be complete fall 2014.
