Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA)
SPLIT TRAFFIC PATTERN BEGINS APRIL 28 IN HARFORD COUNTY AS WORK ADVANCES ON $1.1 BILLION IMPROVEMENTS ON I-95 (Motorists northbound on I-95 stay right to access MD 24 from Exit 77A; New pattern continues through June) -- As part of the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA) ongoing $1.1 billion program to relieve congestion and improve travel along I-95 between Baltimore and Harford counties, northbound I-95 between MD 152 to MD 24 will shift to a new traffic pattern on or about April 28. Through June, northbound I-95 traffic will be split – with three lanes to the left and one lane to the right – between Exit 74 (MD 152) and Exit 77 (MD 24). The roadway will be divided by a concrete barrier.
Northbound motorists wishing to access north or southbound MD 24 from Exit 77A should stay to the right of the concrete barrier as they approach the split traffic pattern. Those using Exit 77B to access MD 924, or continuing northbound on I-95, should stay to the left of the barrier (see image). Temporary signs will direct motorists as they approach the traffic split.
The split pattern will allow the MDTA to add an 8,200-foot auxiliary lane on northbound I-95 that will connect the MD 152 on-ramp with the MD 24 off-ramp, providing better traffic operations and a safer transition for vehicles using these interchange ramps. Northbound I-95 also will be resurfaced within the construction area.
The MDTA is continuing work on this and other projects during the COVID-19 state of emergency while adhering to state and federal health and safety guidelines. Drivers are reminded to plan ahead and travel off peak to avoid delays as this critical work continues. When the COVID-19 state of emergency is lifted and normal traffic returns to Maryland roads, traffic delays are typical in this area during afternoon peak periods, and particularly on summer Friday afternoons and evenings as Marylanders travel for weekend events. On average, motorists historically experience northbound Friday afternoon delays with queues up to nine miles, with travel delays up to 20 minutes.
This project is one part of the MDTA’s $1.1 billion Express Toll Lanes (ETL) Northbound Extension Program between MD 43 and north of MD 24 that will help alleviate delays and improve travel along northbound I-95 between Baltimore and Harford counties. In addition to extending the northbound I-95 ETL, the program will replace several bridges that are more than 50 years old and will provide new noise walls for adjacent communities.
The ETL Northbound Extension Program will be completed in multiple segments. For more information, visit mdta.maryland.gov/I95ETLNB/home.html.
Much thanks to ‘Rainbow International' who just completed an application of disinfectant and intense cleaning of our patrol vehicles today. This is a great example of small businesses and local government working together for the benefit of our officers and the community we both serve. We appreciate Rainbow International and Jay Van Deusen stepping up to help keep our officers safe and focused on their jobs.
We have to send a huge thank you to Zoe Rochette. She and her father stopped in a few days ago to drop off a morale boosting poster. Her resonating message is an inspiration for all health care workers, essential business employees, and first responders who must stay on the front line during this battle, the likes of which we’ve never seen before. News is, we’re winning and with hope, prayers and everyone’s continued precautionary efforts, it’ll be over soon. Thanks Zoe and dad, virtual hugs to you both from BAPD.
The Bel Air Lions Club are always looking out for our officers and staff. Thank you David and Sandy Guzewich for delivering today!
Governor Larry Hogan
Today I enacted an executive order which will require the wearing of masks or face coverings when inside any retail establishments, including grocery stores, pharmacies, and convenience stores, or when riding any form of public transportation in Maryland.
It also requires all essential retail locations to require their staff to wear face coverings, and requires those businesses to put appropriate social distancing measures in place in order to keep customers and their staff safe.
To give these retailers time to make these adjustments, the order will go into effect beginning Saturday, April 18, at 7 a.m.
While this order is an important step in our immediate efforts to protect public health and safety, the wearing of masks is also something that we may all have to become more accustomed to in order to safely reopen our state.
The CDC has issued detailed guidance regarding how you can make and use homemade cloth face coverings: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
