I-695 exit ramp to Har­ford Road be­ing re­placed

Baltimore Sun - - AROUND THE REGION -

The exit ramp from the In­ter­state 695 in­ner loop to north­bound Har­ford Road will be closed Thurs­day night, and traf­fic will be rerouted onto a widened ramp in time for the Fri­day morn­ing rush hour, weather per­mit­ting, the State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion said Tues­day. The switch, ex­pected to take place about 10 p.m. Thurs­day, is in­tended to make driv­ing less con­gested and safer by elim­i­nat­ing a short merg­ing area at the end of the cur­rent clover­leaf loop exit ramp, the SHA said. The cur­rent ramp will be closed and even­tu­ally taken down. A traf­fic light at the end of the new ramp will al­low mo­torists trav­el­ing east­bound on the Belt­way to go ei­ther north or south on Har­ford Road from the same exit. It’s part of a $32 mil­lion Bal­ti­more Belt­way widen­ing project.
