8/27/2012I-695 Traffic Alert: SHA to Close/Detour Ramp from I-695 South to MD 144 (Frederick Road) at Exit 12 for One Month Beginning Sep. 9, 2012

The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will temporarily close the ramp from I-695 South (Beltway outer loop) to MD 144 (Frederick Road) for approximately one month beginning 8 p.m. Sunday night, September 9. 

The temporary long-term ramp closure is part of SHA’s $16.5 million project to replace the MD 144 (Frederick Road) bridge over I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) and improve safety and traffic operations at the I-695/MD 144 interchange. 

The following work will be done during the one-month ramp closure:

- Rebuilding the end of the ramp connection to Frederick Road;

- Constructing the transition from the new bridge to the roadway.

- Building new curb, gutter and sidewalk along the future westbound lanes of Frederick Road in the interchange area.     

SHA will close and detour the ramp beginning approximately 8 p.m. Sunday, September 9. During the next month, all motorists traveling from the outer loop of I-695 to MD 144 at Exit 13 will be directed to the following detour route: I-695 South to Exit 12, MD 372 (Wilkens Avenue), right onto Wilkens Avenue East, left onto Kenwood Avenue and then left onto I-695 North (Beltway inner loop) back to Exit 13, Frederick Road East and West.  The ramp will re-open in mid-October, weather permitting.

Citizens with questions about the project may contact the SHA Project Field Office in Catonsville at 410-455-0657, or the SHA District 4 Office - Construction Section at 410-229-2420, toll-free at 1-866-998-0367 or by email:
