TOLLING SYSTEM UPGRADES TO RESULT IN TEMPORARY WEEKEND DETOURS ON INTERCOUNTY CONNECTOR

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                 

January 22, 2020                                                                                                                          

 

 

TOLLING SYSTEM UPGRADES TO RESULT IN TEMPORARY WEEKEND DETOURS ON INTERCOUNTY CONNECTOR

Upgrades to take place over several weekends starting January 24

 

BALTIMORE, MD – The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) is implementing its next generation electronic tolling systems, and as part of those upgrades the agency is replacing existing tolling hardware and software at all toll facilities. Work will begin at the Intercounty Connector (ICC/MD 200) in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties the weekend of January 24.

 

Beginning 9 p.m. Friday, January 24, and continuing until 5 a.m. Monday, January 27, westbound traffic on the ICC/MD 200 will be detoured at New Hampshire Avenue (MD 650). The detour route will direct motorists north on New Hampshire Avenue to Norbeck Road, west to Layhill Road (MD 182) and south on Layhill Road back to westbound ICC/MD 200.

 

The following weekend, from 9 p.m. Friday, January 31, until 5 a.m. Monday, February 3, eastbound ICC/MD 200 traffic will be detoured at Layhill Road (MD 182). The detour route will direct motorists north on Layhill Road to Norbeck Road, east on Norbeck Road to New Hampshire Avenue (MD 650) and south on New Hampshire Avenue back to eastbound ICC/MD 200.

 

During both weekends, motorists will be tolled as a single trip when traveling the detour routes. The temporary detours are needed due to the amount of equipment and work crews involved and to help ensure the safety of workers and motorists.

 

Moving forward, MDTA plans to have crews working on one gantry in each direction of the ICC per weekend. MDTA will issue additional traffic advisories as work progresses and schedules are finalized. Work will be scheduled during off-peak hours, including weekends and overnight. MDTA thanks customers for their patience and reminds them to Stay Alert So No One Gets Hurt!
