The Maryland State Highway Administration announced the temporary closure of the ramp from the inner loop of the I-695 beltway to eastbound Security Boulevard on weekday nights beginning on Sept. 26.
The closure is necessary for Baltimore Gas and Electric crews to perform maintenance on a natural gas pipeline beneath the ramp, the SHA wrote in a release.
Gas service to BGE customers will not be disrupted during the project, according to the SHA.
The ramp will be closed between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m the following morning, from Sunday through Thursday nights, according to SHA.
Work is expected to last about a month, SHA said in the release.
Motorists traveling from northbound I-695 to eastbound Security Boulevard on weeknights will be directed to take Exit 17 for Security Boulevard; stay left on the ramp and proceed to westbound Security Boulevard; proceed west past Belmont Avenue, Lord Baltimore Drive, North Rolling Road; at the end of the highway, make a U-turn onto eastbound Security Boulevard.
SHA said that motorists traveling from northbound I-695 to Woodlawn, Dickeyville, Baltimore City and other destinations east of I-695 should plan ahead for extra travel time on weeknights during the next month.
