Beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, September 18, 2020, northbound MD 295 will be closed to through traffic between I-695 and Bush Street 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 northbound MD 295 will remain closed throughout the weekend and will be reopened to traffic by 5:00 a.m. on Monday, September 21, 2020. In addition to the northbound closure, a single lane closure will be implemented along southbound MD 295 between the hours of 10:00am and 3:00pm on Saturday, September 19, 2020 so that the new bridge beams can be set safely in place. At least one lane of southbound 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.
During the northbound closure, all northbound MD-295 traffic will be diverted onto I-695 to I-95 north. The weekend closure of northbound MD 295 and Saturday’s lane closures/temporary traffic stops along southbound MD 295 may cause congestion and delays. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead for the closure by allowing additional travel time and using alternate routes.
