12/13/2010I-695/MD 144 Interchange Public Meeting Open House Dec. 16 in Catonsville
SHA HOSTS OPEN HOUSE FOR I-695 AT FREDERICK ROAD PROJECT ON DECEMBER 16

Bridge Construction Work Scheduled to Begin in Spring 2011

What:  
 
SHA will host an open house to update residents and commuters on a major bridge replacement project at the I-695 (Baltimore Beltway)/Frederick Road (MD 144) interchange in Catonsville, Baltimore County. 
 
Beginning spring 2011, crews will begin a project to replace the 53-year old Frederick Road (MD 144) bridge over the Baltimore Beltway (I-695) and improve the interchange.  SHA encourages citizens to attend and learn about the bridge replacement and interchange improvements. 
 
When:   
 
Thursday, December 16 between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. 
Snow Date - If Baltimore County Public Schools are closed due to winter storms on December 16, the meeting will take place on Thursday, January 6, 2011.

Where:  
 
Hillcrest Elementary School Cafeteria, 1500 Frederick Road, Catonsville, MD 21228
 
Why:  
 
The Frederick Road Bridge over the Baltimore Beltway is one of several bridges that SHA is addressing under its “system preservation” program. Most of the bridges along I-695 are more than 50 years old and have been replaced such Charles Street and Liberty Road (which are now under construction).
When this project is complete, the bridge over I-695 will be wider, higher and longer to accommodate the future widening of I-695.  Safety improvements will include wider sidewalks, new double-turn lanes, bicycle lanes, ramp realignments and a new signal system to improve traffic flow at the interchange.
