Truck driver checkpoint set to begin in Dundalk

November 30, 2008|By Baltimore Sun staff reports

A checkpoint to examine truckers' identification is set to begin tomorrow for access to the Dundalk Marine Terminal, according to city transportation workers.

To accommodate the checkpoint, the left lane of Keith Avenue will be closed from the bottom of the exit ramp off Interstate 95 southbound to Vail Street. The checkpoint, set to run from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, will enable Maryland Transportation Authority police to ensure truck drivers have identification cards. Truck drivers without cards will be directed to follow a detour to a lot on Broening Highway, where Maryland Transportation Authority Police will conduct a background check on drivers and issue temporary identification cards, according to city transportation officials.

The trial period is set to last through Dec. 30.
