Overnight Lane Closures on I-895 Tunnel

The Maryland Department of Transportation reported there will be two-way traffic in the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel on I-895 this week from Monday to Thursday overnight.

During tunnel closures at the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel, drivers may experience 15-20 minute delays while two-way operations (during which one lane of southbound and northbound traffic is directed into the tunnel that remains open) are implemented. Closure times are dependent on traffic volumes.

The Southbound Tunnel is scheduled to be closed at 8:30 p.m. on the evenings of Monday, September 18, through Thursday, September 21, for maintenance operations. Two-way operations will be in the northbound tunnel. Re-opening is scheduled to take place at 4:30 a.m. the following morning.

MDOT reminds motorists to obey speed limits, adhere to overhead lane signals and stay in your lane.

This is a tentative schedule that is subject to change at any time due to weather, traffic conditions, emergency incidents or priority closures.
