I-95 Express Toll Lanes (ETL) Northbound Extension - Home

This project will continue the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA's) efforts to provide a safe and reliable drive for its customers. In addition, the proposed improvements will increase quality of life for numerous communities with the construction of several new noise walls, the replacement or rehabilitation of seven bridges that are more than 50 years old, improving water quality, and the construction of two new Park and Ride facilities. The Park and Rides are designed with 200-275 parking spaces and include bicycle facilities and accommodations for transit connections for Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) and Harford Transit LINK services. The extension is expected to be open to traffic by the end of 2024 to MD 152, with the full extension to north of MD 24 open to traffic by the end of 2027. The proposed improvements will provide our customers with the option of using the general purpose/non-tolled lanes or using the ETLs. The ETLs will provide a relatively congestion-free commute for all users including those traveling by transit.


News/What’s New

Temporary Nightly Closure of Northbound Off-ramp at MD 152 to Occur Starting Sunday Night and Lasting Through Thursday

The northbound I-95 off-ramp at Exit 74, MD 152, will be temporarily closed starting Sunday night, September 17 and every night through Thursday, September 21, 2023, to facilitate the ongoing reconstruction of the interchange. The closure will be in effect from 10pm to 5am with a detour in place directing traffic to Philidelphia Road/Rte-7 North to MD 24 and back onto northbound I-95 throughout the closures.

Split Traffic Pattern on Northbound I-95 between Mile Marker 73 and Mile Marker 75

Northbound I-95 at the MD 152 interchange (Exit 74) will shift to a new traffic pattern. Anticipated to begin in early December (weather dependent), and continuing through June 2023, traffic will split with two lanes to the left and two lanes to the right of the work zone separated by barrier on northbound I-95 between mile marker 73 and mile marker 75. The split pattern will allow crews a safe work zone to continue construction of the new MD 152 overpass as part of the overall reconstruction of the I-95/MD 152 interchange.

Split Traffic Pattern on Northbound I-95 between Mile Marker 73 and Mile Marker 75

Motorists exiting at MD 152/Mountain Road (Exit 74) MUST stay in the right two lanes as they approach mile marker 73. Northbound I-95 access will continue from all four travel lanes within the split pattern. Temporary signs will be installed to direct motorists approaching the traffic split. The MDTA reminds drivers to plan ahead and travel off-peak to avoid delays as this critical work continues. Traffic delays are typical in this area during afternoon peak periods. On average, motorists historically experience northbound Friday afternoon travel delays up to 20 minutes with queues up to nine miles.

Alternating single-lane traffic on Winters Run Road under I-95 begins May 10

Beginning Tuesday, May 10, 2022, Winters Run Road under I-95 will switch to an alternating traffic pattern maintained in a single lane using a temporary traffic signal. This alternating, single-lane traffic pattern is expected to be in effect until fall 2023. The new traffic pattern is needed to complete the widening of the I-95 Northbound Bridge over Winters Run Road and Winters Run Stream. Minor traffic delays are anticipated, and drivers using Winters Run Road should consider alternate routes. Access to all private residences will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.

The widening of the I-95 Northbound Bridge over Winters Run Road is part of the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA) $1.1 billion I-95 Express Toll Lanes (ETL) Northbound Extension Program to relieve congestion and improve travel along the I-95 Corridor into Harford County. In addition to the I-95 northbound roadway improvements, the program will replace several bridges that are more than 50 years old and provide new noise walls. The ETL Northbound Extension will be completed in multiple segments and expected to open to traffic in 2024 through MD 152 and in 2027 through MD 24.
