I-95 ETL Northbound Extension - Reconstruction of the Interchange at I-95 and MD 152

As part of the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA) $1.1 billion program to relieve congestion and improve travel along the I-95 Corridor into Harford County, the MDTA is reconstructing the interchange at I-95 and MD 152 (Mountain Road) to accommodate the future northbound I-95 Express Toll Lanes (ETL). 

 Project Highlights

  • Roadway
    • Reconstruct approximately 2.7 miles of northbound I-95 to add two northbound Express Toll lanes from north of Old Joppa Road to south of MD 24. (The ‘Reconstruction of NB I-95, MD 43 to South of MD 152’ project is underway to extend the existing ETL from north of MD 43 to the southern limit of the I-95 and MD 152 interchange project.)
    • Reconstruct approximately 0.8 miles of MD 152 from MD 7 to Jaycee Drive
    • New ETL ramps to and from northbound I-95 
    • New traffic signal at the intersection of MD 152 and the new ETL ramps
    • New roundabout at the northbound I-95 exit ramp to provide access to the future Park and Ride at I-95 and MD 152
  • Structures
    • Reconstruct MD 152 overpass
    • New ETL ramp structures to and from I-95 and MD 152
    • Widening Winters Run Bridge
    • 10 Retaining walls
    • 2 new noise walls for nearby communities
  • New signage including dynamic message and toll information signage
  • New Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) 
  • Partial Interchange Lighting 
  • Drainage and stormwater management
  • Landscaping
    • Turfgrass/meadow establishment
    • On-site reforestation
    • Tree plantings adjacent to streams for thermal protection
    • Landscaping at stormwater management facilities

About Construction

Work associated with this project began in fall 2021 and is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2024. During the first phase of work, the median of I-95 will be reconstructed. In addition, the existing Park and Ride and the Old Mountain Road overpass will be closed. A new park and ride has already been opened at MD 24/ MD 924. All I-95 travel lanes and all traffic operations on MD 152 will be maintained during peak traffic periods; however, some travel lanes will be closed during off-peak periods. Drivers should use caution and obey the posted speed limits within the construction zone.
