(July 21, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will perform emergency paving Friday night into Saturday morning on northbound I-695 (Baltimore Beltway inner loop) from US 40 (Baltimore National Pike) to I-70, north of Catonsville. The work is necessary to ensure pavement safety and ride quality following milling operations and recent heavy rains.  

Beginning 10 p.m. Friday, July 22, crews will resurface this section of northbound I-695, with single-lane closures at 10 p.m. and double-lane closures at 11 p.m. The emergency work will continue overnight, and lanes will reopen by 8 a.m. Saturday, July 23. Temporary traffic signs, reflective barrels and electronic arrow boards will alert and guide motorists through the work zone.   

MDOT SHA’s contractor, Allan Myers MD Inc., of Fallston, is performing the work as part of a $12.5 million contract to mill, patch and resurface interstate and U.S. routes at various locations in Baltimore and Harford counties. Customers who have questions about this work may contact the MDOT SHA District 4 Office - Construction Division at 410-229-2300, toll-free at 1-866-998-0367 or shadistrict4@mdot.maryland.gov​.  

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. ​
