Graffiti to be removed on I-95 noise barriers

April 09, 2003

Workers are scheduled to begin removing graffiti today from a stretch of noise barriers along Interstate 95 in Baltimore County.

Someone painted the graffiti - alternating symbols and letters written in black spray paint - on 202 sound-proofing panels just south of the Baltimore Beltway and north of the city line, according to state police and officials with the Maryland Transportation Authority.

State police are investigating the incident, which occurred before daybreak on April 1.

Authorities said they were not sure what the words and symbols mean. "It does not spell out any recognizable wording," said Lori A. Vidil, a spokeswoman for the transportation authority.

Anyone with information about the graffiti is urged to call state police at 410-575-6540.
