Slippery conditions force closing of southbound I-83

A portion of the southbound Jones Falls Expressway was shut down for about three hours yesterday because of slippery conditions.

Rainfall during the night caused an unknown substance in the roadway under the Cold Spring Lane overpass to become slippery, making driving hazardous, said a spokeswoman for the city's Office of Transportation.

Adrienne Barnes, the spokeswoman, said southbound traffic was detoured onto Northern Parkway and rerouted onto JFX at the Falls Road ramp from 7:30 a.m. to about 10:30 a.m. while work crews used sand to absorb the substance.

Marrow donor registration effort will begin today

The second annual Type for Life bone marrow registration drive will begin today from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the School of Nursing adjacent to Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Registration takes about 20 minutes and involves a health questionnaire and the drawing of a small amount of blood. The drive will continue at the same hours daily through Friday at locations in and around the Hopkins medical complex in East Baltimore. Information: 410-502-7716.
