Big change coming on east side interstates
A detailed announcement is expected Wednesday, but here's an early heads up that the Maryland Transportation Authority will implemet an important change to the traffic patterns on Interstate 95 and Interstate 895 starting Sunday iif weather permits,
Where in the past people heading for the Fort McHenry Tunnel had to take a ramp to stay on southbound I-95, after Sunday they will be able to do so by simply going straight, As of that day, travelers heading for the Harbor Tunnel via Interstate 895 will have to uuse an exit ramp.
The Harbor Tunnel carrries about half as much traffic as the McHenry Tunnel. The change is part of the overall reconstruction of I-95 to allow the addition of express toll lanes between the Beltway and White Marsh.
