Beltway Construction to Begin Between MD 43 and I-95

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration will begin a new section of its project to ease congestion and improve reliability along I-695 (Baltimore Beltway) the week of March 18.

When completed, the project will convert portions of the median shoulder along I-695 between I-70 and MD 43 (White Marsh Boulevard) into an additional travel lane during morning and evening rush hours.

The work will take place in the median of I-695 between MD 43 (White Marsh Boulevard) and the Lillian Holt Drive overpass (just west of I-95) on the eastern section of the project limits.

Motorists should expect significant off-peak delays during this work period. The State Highway Administration anticipates completing the new phase of the project by spring 2025, weather permitting.

Additionally, crews will continue to work on the section of I-695 between Pikesville and Towson, with work anticipated to be completed in summer 2024, weather permitting.
