BALTIMORE COUNTY - The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOTSHA) is warning motorists to prepare for delays along I-695 in central Baltimore County this week.

The agency has scheduled lane closures along several sections of I-695 from the evening of Sunday, August 13, through the afternoon of Friday, August 18.

According to MDOTSHA, the closures will facilitate utility relocation, enhancements to roadside facilities, upgrades to Intelligent Transportation Systems equipment, and repositioning of both temporary and enduring traffic barriers.

More details about the project can be accessed online. All proposed construction and lane restrictions dates are dependent on favorable weather conditions.

  • For those traveling Eastbound on I-695 (inner loop) between MD 140 (Reisterstown Road) and I-83, expect double lane closures from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. during the same dates.

Daytime Shoulder Limitations:
