(August 19, 2013) – On Tuesday, August 20, the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA)’s contractor will close lanes on northbound I-95 north of MD 212 (Powder Mill Road) interchange (exit 29). The closures are necessary to perform work on sign structures over I-95 as part of the Intercounty Connector (ICC)/MD 200 project.

Weather permitting, SHA will close one lane of traffic on northbound I-95 beginning at 9 p.m., followed by double lane closures starting at 11 p.m. After midnight crews will close all lanes of traffic for 15 minute intervals, intermittently, until 5 a.m. All lanes will be open to traffic at 5 a.m. on Wednesday morning. If work is deferred due to weather, the alternative dates for this work are either; Wednesday, August 21, or Thursday, August 22.

Variable message signs will alert motorists on northbound I-95. Motorists should expect delays in traffic. Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area and consider the Baltimore Washington Parkway, US 1 or US 29 as alternate routes.

SHA reminds motorists to reduce speeds and be attentive to help prevent collisions as they drive through the work zone. For more information about the project, please call the ICC Community Outreach staff at 1-866-462-0020.

While SHA and its partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert – look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don't follow too closely. Safer Driving. Safer Work Zones. For everyone!
