​(March 30, 2020) - The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will close two left lanes on I-95/I-495 (Capital Beltway) tomorrow from Pennsylvania Avenue (Exit 11B-A) to Allentown Road (exit 9) for bridge work.

Closures will be in effect from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. as crews complete a deck pour for the I-95/I-495 (Capital Beltway) bridges over Suitland Parkway project. Work will continue every day except Sundays, weather permitting, and will be complete by mid-April.

MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our customers. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on the road and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. For a list of all major MDOT SHA projects, go to roads.maryland.gov.
