​(April 29, 2021) - The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will continue to improve the surface on sections of  I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) in the Catonsville area of Baltimore County. Starting Sunday, May 2, crews will be working at night between US 40 (Baltimore National Pike) and MD 144 (Frederick Road). The improvements are expected to be completed by Friday morning, May 7, weather permitting.   

The work is part of MDOT SHA’s project to widen the southbound I-695 Outer Loop between south of US 40 and MD 144. Learn more about the project HERE.       

The work next week will include the following night-time lane closures:   

  • I-695 southbound/Outer Loop - Milling from US 40 to MD 144: Sunday through Thursday, crews will work 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Motorists can expect single lane closures at 7 p.m., and double lane closures at 10 p.m. through 5 a.m. the next day.    
  • I-695 northbound/Inner Loop - Paving from MD 144 to US 40: Sunday through Thursday, crews will work 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Motorists can expect single lane closures at 7 p.m., and double lane closures at 10 p.m. through 5 a.m. the next day. 

In case of inclement weather, the paving work and temporary lane closures will be rescheduled to the next possible night.       

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.
