Lynn Haven intersection to be closed until spring

The intersection of Lord Baltimore and Lynn Haven drives, adjacent to the Baltimore Beltway/Liberty Road interchange, will be closed beginning 9 a.m. Monday for the second phase of a $4.1 million improvement project, state highway officials said.

Highway crews are building a connecting road from Lord Baltimore Drive to a new signal light at Route 26, also called Liberty Road. Crews will also widen the exit ramp from the outer loop of the Beltway to westbound Liberty Road and will construct a connecting road from the ramp to the new Lord Baltimore Drive.

As a result, motorists who use the exit ramp will be able to turn right on westbound Liberty Road, left onto eastbound Liberty Road or proceed straight to the new Lord Baltimore Drive connection. The loop exit ramp from the outer loop to eastbound Liberty Road will be removed.

Also, the outer loop entrance ramp from eastbound Liberty Road will be moved farther east to increase the distance between the ramp and the new intersection.

The interchange project, which began in October, will take approximately two years to complete. New traffic patterns caused by the closure of the intersection at Lord Baltimore and Lynn Haven drives are expected to be in place through late spring, officials said.
