KINGSVILLE, MD—The bridge over Interstate 95 located on Raphel Road in Kingsville is reopening on Friday. This project is one of many that have impacted area residents for years. These improvements are part of the expansion of I-95 from White Marsh to Route 152, and eventually to MD 24, including the replacement of bridges that are more than 50 years old.

Councilman David Marks expressed his gratitude for the completion of the project saying, “I would like to thank the residents and motorists who have patiently endured this project and am glad that it is finally finished. Kingsville has really felt the impact of this bridge and road construction, and we are happy it is wrapping up in this area.”

The closed bridges across I-95 have made travel for Kingsville and neighboring residents more difficult.

Delegate Ryan Nawrocki stated, “As a member of the Environment and Transportation Committee of the Maryland General Assembly, I regularly hear the impact of our infrastructure on the lives of residents. I look forward to the ability to travel more easily across District 7A.”

“Although inconvenienced for many years to include bridges and commuter parking reconstructions, residents and commuters in the area will have safer and less congested travel along I-95 once the expansion is completed,” said Delegate Kathy Szeliga.

The Maryland Department of Transportation expects the expansion of I-95 to be open to MD 152 by the end of 2024 and the full extension north to MD 24 to be open to traffic by the end of 2027. The project includes the replacement of seven bridges more than 50 years old and construction of two new park and ride facilities.
