B-W Parkway closings coming tonight
The Baltimore-Washington Parkway will be closed intermittently tonight as construction crews remove two steel beams from the bridge that carries Ridge Road over the highway near BWI Marshall Airport.
The State Highway Administration said its bridge rehabilitation project will require several complete closures of the road, also known as Maryland 295, for periods of 15 minutes between midnight at 5 a.m. In addition, a single lane will be closed through the night at 9 p.m. The agency suggested that travelers use alternate routes such as Interstates 95 or 97 or U.S. 1.
Ridge Road will remain open during the operation, which is part of a $1.2 million project to rebuild the 61-year-old Ridge Road bridges over the parkway. The work is expected to be completed next summer.
