ICC comes to I-95, brings lane closings
The $2.5 billion Inter-county Connector project will start being felt by drivers on Interstate 95 as the State Highway Administration begins a series of lane closings and traffic shifts to allow for construction of the interchange of the two highways.
The lane closings, which will affect the stretch of I-95 between Route 198 in Laurel and Route 212 in Beltsville, will continue through Sept. 29. Changes in the traffic pattern will remain in place until July 2011.
Northbound single-lane closings will start at 8 p.m., while southbound closings will start at 7 p.m. Double lane closings will start in both directions at 11 p.m. The highway administration is warning motorists to expect delays.
Lanes will be shifted to the left, using the inside median as a travel lane, so that new feeder lanes can be built on the right sides of I-95 to lead to the ICC.
