24/7 TRAFFIC SHIFT ON NORTHBOUND I-95 BETWEEN FORT MCHENRY TUNNEL AND EASTERN AVENUE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April 5, 2018

 

Contact:         John Sales

24/7 TRAFFIC SHIFT ON NORTHBOUND I-95 BETWEEN FORT MCHENRY TUNNEL AND EASTERN AVENUE

 

WHAT: All lanes on northbound I-95 between the Fort McHenry Tunnel and Eastern Avenue will be fully shifted to the left.  There will be no right shoulder and only a small left shoulder.

 

WHEN: Weather permitting, the northbound I-95 traffic shift will be in place by noon on Friday, April 6, and last until Summer 2018. 

 

WHY: Your Toll Dollars At Work.  The traffic shift and ramp closure are part of the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA) $49.4 million project to reconfigure travel lanes on a four-mile stretch of I-95 north of the Fort McHenry Tunnel.  Once complete, the project will provide four continuous lanes on I-95 between the Tunnel and Moravia Road. 

 

REMINDER: The MDTA and MDTA Police have deployed Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) equipment to slow drivers in the work zone on northbound and southbound I-95 between the Fort McHenry Tunnel and Moravia Road.  Advance warning signs are in place prior to the work zone to alert drivers of ASE use and a “speed trailer” is on-site to display drivers’ speeds.  By law, if a vehicle is recorded traveling 12 or more miles over the posted speed limit (the posted speed is 50 mph at this location), a $40 fine will be issued to the registered owner of the vehicle.
