I-95 lanes to close for resurfacing

April 20, 1999

The State Highway Administration is preparing to resurface Interstate 95 between Routes 32 and 216.

This weekend, lanes will be closed along northbound and southbound I-95 between the interchanges from 9 p.m. Friday to 11 a.m. Sunday.

Concrete patching will be done in preparation for the resurfacing project this summer. The project will include safety improvements such as upgrading guardrails and roadside rumble strips and installing new pavement markings.

The road will be milled -- its surface removed -- repaired and resurfaced.

Delays are expected throughout the I-95 corridor between Baltimore and Washington. The SHA is encouraging motorists to use alternate routes, such as Route 295, U.S. 1, U.S. 29 and Route 100.

The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph in the work zone, and speeding fines will be doubled.

The project is expected to cost $4.95 million.
