Work to reroute Beltway at Charles Street postponed

December 22, 2009

Construction on a stretch of Interstate 695 between Interstate 83 and Charles Street has been postponed until January because of the weekend's heavy snow, according to the State Highway Administration. Agency spokesman David Buck said the work could begin as early as Jan. 4 or 5, but for now highway workers will be dealing with snow and ice. The months-long construction project will require a temporary split of the lanes along the east-bound Inner Loop as workers replace concrete on the bridge over the light rail tracks. The work is a side project in the state's $50 million I-695-Charles Street Interchange project that will eventually allow for the Beltway to be expanded. Work is being done in phases so all the traffic lanes can remain open. For more information about highway construction along the Beltway, call the State Highway Administration's District Four office at 410-229-2300 or e-mail shadistrict4@sha.state.md.us.
