Traffic detours set in Glen Burnie

June 27, 1996|By Dan Thanh Dang | Dan Thanh Dang,SUN STAFF

The State Highway Administration will detour and shift traffic today and Saturday in Glen Burnie because of construction on two ramps connecting Route 174 to Interstate 97, and a third ramp connecting southbound I-97 to Route 100.

Today, motorists will use a new ramp to reach southbound I-97 from Route 174, or Quarterfield Road. Also, motorists trying to get to Business Route 3 will be connected directly to it via Route 174. These changes will remain in effect until the end of next month.

On Saturday, motorists southbound on I-97 will enter Route 174 on a new ramp about 2,000 feet north of the existing ramp. SHA will also temporarily close the ramp from southbound I-97 to eastbound Route 100 from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Striping, traffic barrels and message signs will alert and direct motorists to changes along the road, SHA officials said. The changes are necessary to complete paving and lane markings.

The construction is part of a $100 million project on Route 100 to connect Anne Arundel and Howard counties. Most of the work should be complete by fall.
