​Overnight Resurfacing in Catonsville Area Will Continue Through Late June

(May 16, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin a project Wednesday, May 18, to improve asphalt pavement on nearly two miles of I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) in the Catonsville area of Baltimore County. Through late June, crews will work overnight between MD 372 (Wilkens Avenue) and MD 144 (Frederick Road). The work is weather permitting.   

As part of the $2.6 million project, MDOT SHA contractor crews will patch, mill and resurface pavement on I-695 Inner and Outer loops. They will work overnight, 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday evenings through Friday mornings. Motorists can expect double-lane closures while the work is taking place.   

During work hours, temporary traffic signs, reflective barrels and electronic arrow boards will be in place to guide motorists through the work zone. MDOT SHA contractor Allan Myers - MD Inc., of Fallston, is performing the pavement work.   

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 driving, and look for reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes. Please drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones.  

Motorists in need may dial #77 on their mobile device for roadside assistance.
