TRAFFIC ALERT: MD 295 NORTHBOUND AT WEST NURSERY ROAD TO REMAIN CLOSED THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING
October 20 - MD 295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway) northbound will remain closed at West Nursery Road through Saturday morning. The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) originally planned to reopen MD 295 by 6 a.m. Saturday, but more time is needed to safely remove the West Nursery Road bridge over the northbound lanes. The southbound lanes were reopened as planned prior to 6 a.m. Saturday. SHA will issue updates on Saturday advising motorists of traffic conditions and an anticipated opening time for MD 295 northbound at West Nursery Road.
Motorists are urged to plan ahead and use I-97 or I-95 for their weekend travel. Motorists accessing BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport from the east can use I-97 to MD 176 (Dorsey Road) and follow the "Airport Loop" signs. Motorists accessing the airport from the west should use I-95 to I-195 to the terminal. Travelers passing through the area or to any of the major sporting events in Baltimore, Washington or Annapolis should use I-95 or I-97.
