11/26/2012SHA to Re-open Ramp from I-695 South to MD 144 (Frederick Rd.) at Exit 13 on or after November 28
SHA has reached a major milestone of the I-695/Frederick Road bridge replacement project.  Beginning 8 p.m. Wednesday, November 28, crews will shift all traffic on the old Frederick Road bridge over to the first half of the new Frederick Road bridge.  Crews will also re-open the ramp from I-695 South/Outer Loop to Frederick Road, which has been closed for construction work. 
During the late-night traffic switch, the Frederick Road bridge will remain open, with Maryland State Police and flagpersons controlling traffic within the interchange area. 
However, there will be a temporary overnight closure of the ramp from Frederick Road to I-695 South/Outer Loop between 8 p.m. Wednesday and 5 a.m.  Thursday.  Motorists will be diverted to the ramp to I-695 North/Inner Loop, through the Edmondson Avenue interchange, and back to I-695 South/Outer Loop. 
Weather permitting, the new traffic pattern will be in effect 5 a.m. Thursday, November 29.  In case of inclement weather, the bridge traffic switch and ramp re-opening will take place on the next possible weeknight.   
Citizens with questions about the project may call SHA’s Construction Project Engineer, Mr. Warren Pendergrass, at the SHA Construction Project Field office in Catonsville at 410-455-0657 or the SHA District Four Office in Hunt Valley at 1-866-998-0367.
