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

This project will enhance the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA's) efforts to provide a safe and reliable drive for its customers and expands the Traffic Relief Plan that Governor Larry Hogan announced in December 2017. In addition, the proposed improvements will increase quality of life for numerous communities with the addition of several new noise walls and will replace or rehabilitate seven bridges that are more than 50 years old. 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.

News/What’s New

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.

Clayton Road Overpass at I-95 Reopens to Traffic 

The Clayton Road overpass at I-95 has reopened to traffic. The overpass closed for reconstruction in September 2020 and has reopened as scheduled in April 2022. MDTA thanks local residents and motorists for their patience.  

Reconstruction Closes Raphel Road Overpass at I-95 Until Early 2023

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 beginning the reconstruction of the Raphel Road overpass to accommodate two ETL from south of MD 43 to south of MD 152. Beginning early March, the Raphel Road overpass at I-95 will be closed for reconstruction. The overpass is scheduled to reopen by early 2023. 

During construction, all traffic will be detoured to the Bradshaw Road overpass. Access to all private residences will be maintained throughout the duration of the project. In addition to daytime work, some overnight work along I-95 and Raphel Road will be necessary to complete the improvements.

Traffic Shift on MD 152 at I-95

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, travel lanes on MD 152 at I-95 will be shifted to accommodate reconstruction of the existing interchange.

Anticipated to begin on February 9 (weather dependent), MD 152 traffic will shift from their current location to the outside of the roadway in both directions on MD 152 between Old Mountain Road/Jaycee Drive and MD 7 (Philadelphia Road). All access to and from I-95 will retain its present configuration throughout this phase of construction, which will last approximately 3 months. The MDTA reminds drivers to plan ahead and travel off-peak to avoid delays as this critical work continues.

Reconstruction of the Interchange at I-95 and MD 152 & Closure of the MD 152 Park and Ride Lot

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 beginning the reconstruction of the I-95/MD 152 interchange and northbound roadway to accommodate two ETL from south of MD 152 to south of MD 24. Work associated with the interchange will require Old Mountain Road and the existing MD 152 Park and Ride lot to close.

MD 152 Park and Ride Lot to Close

The lot will close on or about December 15, as reconstruction of the I-95/MD 152 interchange begins. To accommodate the existing park and ride users, the MDTA opened a new Park and Ride lot at the intersection of MD 924 and Woodsdale Road, adjacent to the I-95 interchange at MD 24/MD 924 in the Abingdon area of Harford County. The MDTA encourages users of the MD 152 Park and Ride lot to utilize this new facility. Advanced signage has been installed to direct users to the new Park and Ride lot. It will serve the existing MD 152 Park and Ride customers until a new Park and Ride at MD 152 is completed in late 2025. For directions to the new lot please view the MD 24/MD 924 Park and Ride project sheet.

Reconstruction of Northbound I-95 from MD 43 to South of 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 beginning preliminary work to widen northbound I-95 between MD 43 (White Marsh Boulevard) and MD 152 (Mountain Road) to make way for the extension of two northbound Express Toll Lanes. The existing travel lanes have been shifted to the left towards the median area. Traffic barrier is being installed along the right shoulder to separate traffic from construction activities. All northbound travel lanes will be maintained during peak travel periods.

The barrier separation provides a safe work zone for construction workers to perform the roadway widening. Motorists should expect delays when traveling through the work zone. Please obey all speed limits and be alert so no one gets hurt. For more information, visit mdta.Maryland.gov/I95ETLNB/home.html
