BALTIMORE, Md. - Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) and the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will temporarily close the ramp from the inner loop of I-695 to eastbound Security Boulevard (MD 122) on weeknights for approximately one month. The weeknight ramp closure and detour will allow BGE crews to perform maintenance on a natural gas pipeline underneath the ramp. The ramp closure will be in effect Sunday through Thursday nights, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next morning.
Motorists traveling from northbound I-695 to eastbound Security Boulevard on weeknights will be directed to the following detour: take Exit 17 for Security Boulevard; stay left on the ramp and proceed to westbound Security Boulevard; proceed west past Belmont Avenue, Lord Baltimore Drive, North Rolling Road; at the end of the highway, make a U-turn onto eastbound Security Boulevard. Proceed on eastbound Security Boulevard.
Motorists traveling from northbound I-695 to Woodlawn, Dickeyville, Baltimore City and other destinations east of I-695 should plan ahead for extra travel time on weeknights during the next month.
