Two new ramps linking Interstate 95 to the Baltimore Beltway are scheduled to open for today's morning rush hour, part of the Maryland Transportation Authority's $1.5 billion project to add express toll lanes to the heavily traveled north-south highway. The ramps connect southbound I-95 to eastbound Interstate 695 toward Essex, and to westbound I-695 toward Towson. Motorists headed toward Essex will now use the right lane to exit, instead of the left lane. Teri Moss, an MdTA public information officer, said the configuration is a safety measure true of all the ramps involved in the project.

Morning commuters faced a host of problems yesterday, as crashes and construction tied up major highways for hours. Part of Interstate 95 southbound into Baltimore was down to one lane as late as 6:45 a.m. A contractor resurfacing I-95 at the Interstate 895 overpass failed to clear the work zone and open all three lanes by the rush hour as usual because a crash delayed work, authorities said. Four vehicles were involved in that crash on I-95 southbound at the I-895 split at 5:57 a.m. No one was seriously injured, but the vehicles were moved into the work area so drivers could exchange information.
