SHA to shift traffic onto new Old Harford Road bridge over I-695

Old Harford Road I-695A major milestone is fast-approaching for the $32 million I-695 widening project between Perring Parkway and Harford Road in Parkville.

On Wednesday night, June 1, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will switch traffic onto the new Old Harford Road Bridge over I-695.

“This project is progressing despite the recent weeks-long rain and the new bridge is a major benefit to motorists who use Old Harford Road,” said Acting District Engineer Wendy Wolcott. “This project will improve safety and help to ease congestion for the thousands of motorists who use this section of the beltway each day.”

The new two-lane bridge will carry two through lanes, one left turn lane, shoulders and ADA-compliant sidewalks on both sides.

Traffic will be alternated using a flagging operation on Old Harford Road beginning at 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 1 until 5 a.m. Thursday, June 2.
