The State Highway Administration has completed the first part of its project to improve the Baltimore Beltway and Liberty Road interchange. A newly widened exit ramp from southbound Interstate 695 to Liberty Road - also known as Route 26 - opened last week. Drivers can travel east or west on Liberty Road from the ramp. The modifications are part of a nearly two-year, $4.5 million SHA project to improve safety and traffic flow in the interchange, and it is scheduled to be completed next summer, according to the agency.

The right lane of the I-395 exit ramp onto I-95 will reopen sometimes between 9 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. on Saturday, depending on weather, the MdTA said.

The closure of a 100-foot strip of roadway off the eastbound lanes of Route 32, which motorists once used to get onto southbound U.S. 1, has Savage residents fuming.Over pork barbecue at Ma's Kettle, a local landmark, and in phone calls to County Council members, they complain the closure is causing big backups on the exit ramp to U.S. 1.On July 30, State Highway Administration officials closed the strip, used as a merger lane, in hopes of reducing accidents. Traffic engineers attributed a number of accidents to motorists who used the short section as a way onto southbound U.S. 1.Members of the council, the highway administration and the Savage Community Association plan to discuss the closure and possible alternatives at a community meeting Oct. 27.That won't be soon enough for some residents.

Savage residents, angered by the closing of part of a Route 32 exit ramp, favor an alternative that was originally proposed by a State Highway Administration official.Wayne Clingan, a district engineer who died nine months ago, had suggested that trucks seeking access to the Savage Industrial Park be required to use the Dorsey Run Road exit to the east of U.S. 1 rather than the Route 32-U.S. 1 exit.Instead, on July 30, in hopes of reducing accidents, the state closed a 100-foot strip of roadway off the eastbound lanes of Route 32 onto southbound U.S. 1, which motorists had used as a merging lane.

Commuters who drive to downtown Baltimore from the south face two weeks of excruciating backups as maintenance work on a pipeline forces the closing of one of the two main ramps leading from Interstate 95 to the heart of the city. The Maryland Transportation Authority will close the Exit 52 ramp to Russell Street from northbound I-95 from about 9 p.m. Saturday through 6 a.m. March 20. Most commuters who normally use that ramp will be squeezed onto the Exit 53 ramp to Interstate 395 - already the scene of backups that sometimes stretch to the Beltway.

TRIED TO exit to Greenspring Avenue from Interstate 695 at rush hour lately?The place is a traffic nightmare, particularly in the afternoon when cars back up onto the inner-loop exit ramp -- mainly because of the turning situation just ahead.Most cars need to turn left on to Greenspring, but a traffic light at Old Court Road near the exit causes a rolling jam almost every evening. The problem has become so bad that some drivers are turning right, toward the lush Green Spring Valley, and making the first U-turn back toward Charm City.

There are a couple things that make my daily commute a little worse. The first is what I call "ramp riders," motorists who take an exit ramp not to exit, but to bypass slower traffic by continuing onto the on-ramp to merge into traffic ahead of where they were when they exited. This is especially prevalent on Maryland Route 32 at U.S. Route 1 in the afternoons in the northbound directions. It's gotten worse in the last couple years with the influx of workers to the Fort Meade area. This also occurs in the afternoon on Route 95 North at Calverton (Route 212)

The Baltimore police commander in charge of the homicide squad was suspended Monday after he apparently skidded off an Interstate 95 exit ramp and abandoned his unmarked cruiser, according to spokesmen for city and state police. Maj. Terrence P. McLarney, a 34-year veteran, will be paid while awaiting the outcome of the investigation. Failure to immediately report an accident, or even a breakdown, is against department rules and regulations. A city police spokesman said the suspension is routine and required during an active investigation.
