I-95 ETL Northbound Extension - Southbound I-95 Noise Wall from MD24 to north of Woodsdale Road

As part of the MDTA’s $1.1 billion program to relieve congestion and improve travel along the I-95 corridor into Harford County, the MDTA is reconstructing northbound (NB) I-95 from MD 43 to north of MD 24. The future roadway configuration will consist of four general purpose, non-tolled lanes to MD 24 and two ETL. North of MD 24 the future roadway configuration will consist of three general purpose lanes and the ETL will merge into NB I-95 ending north of the Abingdon Overpass. As part of the Program, a new noise wall will be constructed along southbound I-95 from MD 24 to north of Woodsdale Road. The noise wall will provide noise level reduction for the Waldon Apartments. The location of the new noise wall will vary to optimize its effectiveness. Portions of the noise wall will be located along the existing southbound shoulder and portions will transition back to the right-of-way line. The noise wall will enhance the quality of life for the residents in this community by reducing the noise levels from the highway. The new noise wall will not eliminate the noise level but will reduce the noise level to be within the acceptable ranges as defined by state and federal guidelines.

The new noise walls will:

  • Include a stone pattern finish
  • Vary in height from approximately 12 feet to 32 feet
