Here's what to look for if you are traveling in the Baltimore metropolitan area this week. This list of highway projects includes only newly announced work, not continuing construction, which is extensive on several highways, including Interstate 95, U.S. 50/301 and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway.


Fort Smallwood Road -- Two of the three lanes on westbound Fort Smallwood Road are closed between Solley Road and just beyond the city Line. Only the right lane is open. These lane closures are required to allow water-line repair.

White Marsh Boulevard, Route 43 -- Expect single-lane closures east and westbound between Interstate 695 and Interstate 95 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow through Saturday.

Route 7, Philadelphia Road at Abingdon Road -- Travel on Route 7 is limited. Westbound traffic will be shifted to the newly constructed section of Route 7. Eastbound traffic will be detoured by making a right on to Cokesbury Road, then left on Abingdon Road and right on Route 7. This traffic pattern will be in effect until approximately Thursday, weather permitting. No truck over 5 tons will be permitted on eastbound Route 7 between Emmorton and Creswell roads. Trucks may use I-95 or U.S. 40.

Security Boulevard -- Trucks are not permitted on the westbound ramp of Security Boulevard leading to the outer loop of I-695. Trucks will be detoured from Security Boulevard to the inner loop of I-695 to westbound Liberty Road (Route 26) to the ramp for I-695 outer loop. This detour will continue for several months.
