​(August 14, 2020) - The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will patch and resurface several bridge approaches on I-95 in Howard County starting this Sunday, August 16, at 8 p.m. to enhance the roadway surface and safety.

The project locations are:

  • Northbound I-95 over Stansfield Road   
  • Northbound I-95 over the Little Patuxent River   
  • Southbound I-95 over the Patuxent River at the Prince George’s County line   
  • Montgomery Road over I-95   
  • Guilford Road over I-95   
  • Gorman Road over I-95   
  • Eastbound and westbound MD 32 over I-95   

All work performed on I-95 and MD 32 (Sykesville Road) will be done overnight from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning. Crews are scheduled for daytime hours from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. when working on other roadways. The project is expected to be complete in September.   

MDOT SHA’s contractor, Gray and Son, Inc. of Timonium, will use electronic message boards, signs, and barrels to alert motorists about single lane closures and detours.    

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. Drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones.
