I-95 ramps to Beltway to close tonight, tomorrow
Late-night travelers be warned: Getting onto the Baltimore Beltway from Interstate 95 south of the city could be tricky.
According to the State Highway Administration, the ramps from northbound and southbound I-95 to westbbound Interstate 695 will close tonight and tomorrow night at 11 p.m. and remain closed until 5 a.m. Travelers will be diverted onto eastbound I-695, where they will be directed to the Hollins Ferry Road exit, where they can circle around to get on the westbound Beltway.
The highway agency said the closings will allow road crews to place pavement markings and set up concrete barriiers as part of a $3 million plan to widen the I-95 westbound ramps -- now the scene of frequent backups. The entire project is expected to take until fall to complete. Additional midday and overnight closings are expected as work progresses on the project.
