Starting Friday evening, the Northwest Expressway — Interstate 795 — will be undergoing resurfacing between the Baltimore Beltway and Owings Mills Boulevard in Northwest Baltimore County, officials said.

The road work is expected to continue until next fall, according to a statement Monday from the State Highway Administration.

There will be single lane closures in both directions of the expressway between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays and throughout the weekend.

Double lane closures will largely take place during evening and overnight hours. However, there will be double lane closures during daylight hours on four summer weekends. Those weekends have not been set, but will fall between June 15 and August 20 (excluding the Fourth of July holiday weekend) and will be announced in advance, the SHA statement said.

In addition to closure on the expressway, the interstate's on- and off-ramps may be closed and detours set up during the overnight hours.

No road work is planned during rush hours or the Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day holidays.

The concrete surface of the expressway will be repaired, traffic barriers will be upgraded, storm drain systems will be improved and the ramps at the Owings Mills Boulevard interchange will be resurfaced.

New pavement markings will also be installed, SHA said.
