Elm Road project to force changes in traffic pattern

Traffic arriving and departing from Baltimore-Washington International Airport is being shifted during late-night hours to allow for removal of traffic medians on Elm Road, between Route 170 and the Maryland Department of Transportation Headquarters.

This construction period will be from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. every day through May 15. One lane of traffic will close periodically and at least one lane will always be open. All lanes will remain open between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. daily.

Equipment and personnel will be in and around the work zone. All construction sites will include signs, lighting, barricades and traffic controls.

Runway to be shut at night for maintenance, repairs

Overnight closures are scheduled for one of the primary runways at BWI so that maintenance and pavement repairs can be done.

One runway used for commercial jet traffic will close from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. each day, beginning Tuesday and ending April 3. All runways are scheduled to be open and operating as normal by 6 a.m. each day. These temporary closures will not affect flight schedules, but some communities around the airport may observe changes in air traffic patterns during the runway closure periods.

The Maryland Aviation Administration coordinates its efforts with the Federal Aviation Administration to limit the periods of runway closures that affect communities around BWI.

Rail station garage elevators out of service

BWI Rail Station commuters should plan ahead if carrying luggage or several items from the parking garage to the train this spring and summer.

The elevators in the rail station garage have been taken out of service because of construction of additional levels.
