7/20/2012POSTPONED: SHA to Close 2 of 3 Lanes on I-795 South for Weekend Concrete Pavement Work Beginning 9 p.m. Friday July 20
(July 19, 2012) - The concrete work and lane closures on I-795 scheduled for the weekend of July 20 have been postponed.  A new date for the weekend work will be posted as soon as information is available.

(July 18, 2012) - The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) is temporarily closing two of three lanes along southbound I-795 (Northwest Expressway) between Owings Mills Boulevard (MD 940) and I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) this weekend for concrete pavement patching work. 
Contractor crews will close the right lane of southbound I-795  beginning 9 p.m. Friday, July 20, and will close the middle lane at 10 p.m.  The left lane will remain open to traffic.  The temporary double lane closure will remain in effect until 5 a.m. Monday, July 23.   
Crews will be in the work zone at various times throughout the weekend to pour and set sections of concrete pavement.  Even though crews may not be present, sections of concrete pavement will be closed until the concrete is cured and declared safe for travel.  Maryland State Police will patrol the work zone this weekend. 
The work is part of SHA’s ongoing $3.8 million project to repair pavement along I-795 between I-695 and the CSX overpass in Owings Mills.  The project began spring 2012 and will be complete fall 2013, weather permitting.
Citizens with questions about the project may contact SHA’s District 4 Office - Construction Division at 410-229-2420, toll-free at 1-866-998-0367 or by email:  Follow SHA on Twitter @MDSHA.
