Beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, August 28, 2020, southbound MD 295 will be closed to through traffic between Bush Street and I-695 with detours in effect, weather permitting. This closure of southbound MD 295 is necessary to erect concrete beams for the new Annapolis Road Bridge. This portion of southbound MD 295 will remain closed throughout the weekend and will be reopened to traffic by 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 30, 2020. Due to bad weather in the forecast for Saturday, August 29, 2020 which could delay work, the southbound MD 295 detour may remain in effect until Monday, August 31, 2020 at 5:00 am. In addition to the southbound closure, a single lane closure will be implemented along northbound MD 295 throughout the day on Saturday, August 29, 2020 so that the new bridge beams can be set safely in place. At least one lane of northbound MD 295 will remain open for vehicular traffic during this time, however travelers should expect 5-10 minute traffic stoppages at times to accommodate the beam placement. The use of alternate routes such as I-83, I-695, or I-95 to access the City are encouraged.
