​Drivers Can Expect Temporary Lane Closures June 4-9 

(June 2, 2023) - The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration will implement overnight lane closures along parts of I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) and intermittent daytime lane closures on MD 122 (Security Boulevard) in western Baltimore County from Sunday, June 4, through Friday, June 9. 

The lane closures are a required part of the ongoing efforts to relocate utilities, install new roadside infrastructure, and relocate existing traffic barriers. These tasks are part of the I-695 Transportation Systems Management and Operations project from I-70 to MD 43 (White Marsh Boulevard). Learn more about the project here.  

Beginning Sunday night, motorists can expect the following:      

Daytime Lane Closures:  

  • MD 122 (Security Boulevard) under I-695 bridge: Daytime intermittent single-lane closures on eastbound and westbound Security Boulevard will occur to allow for the contractor team’s installation of Intelligent Transportation Systems hardware. The closures will last for up to 15 minutes at any time between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday, June 5, through Friday, June 9. Note: Concurrent with this project, BGE is continuing its underground electric line reliability project 24/7 on eastbound MD 122 on the approach to the right-turn ramp to southbound I-695​ (outer loop) through late June.   

Overnight Lane Closures:  

  • Northbound and Southbound I-695 (inner and outer loops) from I-70 to MD 139 (Charles Street): Overnight double left or double right lane closures will occur for barrier wall removal or installation by the contractor team between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next day, Sunday, June 4, through Thursday, June 8. 

All work and lane closures are weather permitting. The State Highway Administration understands lane closures can be an inconvenience, but the work is necessary to maintain and improve the transportation system for all.  ​

Drivers are asked to stay alert, stay focused, look for reduced speed limits as well as driving pattern changes, and slow down in construction zones.
