JOPPA, MD—The next phase of the I-95 Express Toll Lane Northbound Extension project will soon begin.
The Maryland Transportation Authority has embarked on a $1.1 billion program to relieve congestion and improve travel along the Interstate 95 corridor into northern Baltimore County and Harford County. Currently, the MDTA has five active projects including replacing Clayton Road overpass, noise wall construction along the southbound roadway north of New Forge Road, and northbound mainline construction, which will add two Express Toll Lanes (ETL) to the existing four general purpose lanes between MD 43 and MD 152.
The next construction project, which will begin shortly, is the reconstruction of the I-95/MD 152 interchange and northbound roadway to accommodate two ETL from south of MD 152 to south of MD 24. Work associated with the interchange will require Old Mountain Road and the existing MD 152 Park and Ride lot to close.
The lot will close on or about December 15, as reconstruction of the I-95/MD 152 interchange begins. To accommodate the existing park and ride users, the MDTA opened a new Park and Ride lot at the intersection of MD 924 and Woodsdale Road, adjacent to the I-95 interchange at MD 24/MD 924 in the Abingdon area of Harford County.
The MDTA is encouraging users of the MD 152 Park and Ride lot to utilize this new facility. Advanced signage has been installed to direct users to the new Park and Ride lot. It will serve the existing MD 152 Park and Ride customers until a new Park and Ride at MD 152 is completed in late 2025. Directions to the new lot are available online at the MD 24/MD 924 Park and Ride project sheet.
The ETL Northbound Extension will be completed in multiple segments and is expected to open to traffic in 2024 through MD 152 and in 2027 through MD 24. Additional information is available at mdta.Maryland.gov/I95ETLNB/home.html.
