​Work Will Require Overnight Single-Lane Closures of I-695 at Chesaco Avenue

(June 17, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin a project next week to improve traction on the driving surface of the inner and outer loops of I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) in the vicinity of Chesaco Avenue in eastern Baltimore County. Work will include texturizing .35 miles of the asphalt pavement and replacing reflective pavement markings as needed.   

Starting at 9 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, and continuing for about two weeks, single-lane closures on eastbound and westbound I-695 at Chesaco Avenue will be in effect from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday evenings through Friday mornings.

The contractor, Allan Myers – MD Inc., of Fallston, and its subcontractor, Skidabrader Group of Ft. Worth, Texas, will use temporary signs, electronic arrow boards and barrels to alert and guide motorists through the work zone.    

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 driving pattern changes. Please drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones.

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