Baltimore City: Interstate 95

Three lanes to close near Eastern Avenue

The work - expected to last from 7 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the next morning - is expected to be finished by Friday morning, weather permitting. The crews are performing work as part of the two-year project to repair the 22 bridges along I-95 from the Fort McHenry Tunnel toll plaza and the merge of I-95 and Interstate 895. Officials recommend that motorists use either I-895 Baltimore Harbor Tunnel Thruway or Interstate 695 as alternates.
