​Drivers Can Expect Overnight Lane Closures After Independence Day Holiday 

(June 29, 2023) - The Maryland State Highway Administration will continue overnight lane closures along parts of I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) and overnight lane closures on MD 122 (Security Boulevard) in western Baltimore County Wednesday, July 5, and Thursday, July 6.  

The lane closures are required for relocation of utilities, installation of new roadside infrastructure, installation of new Intelligent Transportation Systems hardware, and relocation of temporary and permanent 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.   

There will be no temporary lane closures on the I-695 project Monday night, July 3 and Tuesday night, July 4 due to the Independence Day holiday.       

Overnight Lane Closures:   

  • ​Northbound and Southbound I-695 (inner and outer loops) from I-70 to MD 139 (Charles Street): Overnight single right lane closures Wednesday, July 5, and Thursday, July 6 between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next day.
  • MD 122 (Security Boulevard) under I-695 bridge: Overnight single-lane closures on eastbound and westbound Security Boulevard Wednesday, July 5, and Thursday, July 6, between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next day.  

Note: Concurrent with this project, BGE​ is continuing its underground electric line reliability project 24/7 and pavement resurfacing on eastbound MD 122 on the approach to the right-turn ramp to southbound I-695 (outer loop) in late July. 

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. 

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