Work on I-97 section to alter traffic flow starting Sunday

January 12, 1995

GLEN BURNIE -- The State Highway Administration will begin closing and shifting lanes along southbound Interstate 97 Sunday from the Beltway to Route 648 to accommodate construction work in that area.

Crews will start closing lanes at 7 a.m. Sunday to shift southbound traffic to a one-mile stretch of newly built highway by 6 a.m. Monday, weather permitting. Traffic using Route 648 ramps to and from southbound I-97, and traffic getting onto southbound I-97 from the Beltway and I-895, may be delayed.

The alterations in traffic flow are expected to last until this portion of the I-97 widening project is completed in late summer 1995. Signs, striping, reflective drums and concrete barriers will guide motorists through the new traffic pattern.
