Open House for the I-695 Repairs and Rehabilitation Project

An Informational Open House for the I-695 Repairs and Rehabilitation project at Sparrows Point near Bear Creek in Baltimore County will be held on Nov. 9 and 15.

Expected to begin major construction early in 2024, this system preservation project is necessary to address settlement of I-695 that has occurred since it was widened to a multi-lane, median-divided highway in the 1990s. Additional work also will be completed to rehabilitate and enhance the safety of I-695 in this area.

The MDTA will hold two Informational Open Houses in November for the public to learn more about this project. At these meetings, there will be no formal presentations. Staff will be available to answer questions about the displays and the project. The following are the dates and times:

Thursday, November 9, 6-8 p.m.
Fleming Senior Center
641 Main St.
Dundalk, MD 21222

Wednesday, November 15, 6-8 p.m.
Wells McComas VFW
6521 North Point Road
Sparrows Point, MD 21219

Those wishing to attend and requiring accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, or seeking translation services (free of charge), may contact the agency’s Title VI Officer at or at 410-537-6720 (711 for Maryland Relay) no later than 10 business days before the open house they would like to attend.
