In early January, MDOT SHA will close the westbound I-695 (Baltimore Beltway outer loop) ramp to Exit 29 B – A to MD 542 (Loch Raven Boulevard) and Cromwell Bridge Road for weekend underground pipe work at the interchange.

Weather permitting, the temporary ramp closure will be in effect all weekend, between 7 a.m. Saturday, January 5 and 5 a.m., Monday, January 7. In case of inclement weather, the temporary ramp closure will take place the next possible weekend (January 12 or later).

Ramp Detour: Go past Exit 29 B-A on westbound I-695 to the next interchange, Exit 28 to Providence Road.

While MDOT SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands.

Construction work will continue as weather permits for new drainage and water quality improvements along I-695 in the vicinity of the Loch Raven Blvd. and Cromwell Bridge Road interchanges. Motorists may see crews working along the inner loop and outer loop and along the interchange ramps.

During construction, most work will take place behind temporary concrete traffic barriers placed along the shoulders of I-695 and interchange ramps in the vicinity of Minebank Run.

There may be temporary overnight single lane closures on I-695 Sunday - Thursday nights between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next day.

There also may be overnight temporary interchange ramp closures Sunday - Thursday nights between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next day. Advance notice of temporary ramp closures will be posted on portable message boards in the work zone prior to ramp closure dates.

MDOT SHA advises motorists to plan ahead for extra travel time at night in the vicinity of the interchange and to look ahead for lane closures, changing traffic patterns, crews and equipment moving through the work zone.

Weather permitting, the entire project will be complete late summer 2020.
