Baltimore, Maryland (ANN) – Maryland 295 will be shutdown from this evening through early Monday morning starting at Interstate 695.
The Baltimore City Department of Transportation stated a complete closure is necessary to demolish the Annapolis Road Bridge. The closure will begin at 9:00 p.m. Friday April 26 and run to 5:00 a.m. on Monday.
Coming from the city, all Russell Street traffic will be diverted to I-95 Southbound and all northbound traffic on MD-295 will be diverted to I-695 to I-95 Northbound.
The following ramps will also be closed
- I-95 SB to MD-295 SB
- Monroe Street EB to MD-295 SB
- Manokin Stret to MD-295 SB
- Annapolis Road to MD-295 SB
- I-695 exit ramps to MD-295 NB
On Monday, full-time single lane closures will be in effect along both Northbound and Southbound MD-295 in the area of the Annapolis Road Bridge and will be reduced to 2 lanes of travel in both directions through Fall 2020.
The construction was originally scheduled to start April 5 but was delayed to allow the contractor to obtain all necessary permits.
All commuters are being urged to allow additional time if you must travel this area and to use alternative routes to avoid delays.
This construction is happening during the same time that I-895 northbound bores are closed for 60 days that started on April 12.
Travelers should also be advised that I-95 and I-695 might experience heavier traffic due to these two construction projects. Again, all residents and commuters are highly encouraged to allow extra time while traveling during peak times.
