Maryland recently announced the investment of an additional $890 million to extend the northbound I-95 Express Toll Lanes (ETL). The expanded $1.1 billion project will now provide two ETLs for more than 10 miles from north of MD 43 in Baltimore County to north of MD 24 in Harford County.
The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) will begin the expanded $1.1 billion project in early 2019.
The I-95 interchanges at MD 152 and MD 24 also will be reconstructed to provide access from the northbound ETL. Reconstruction of the MD 152 interchange includes associated park-and-ride. Reconstruction of the MD 24 interchange includes a two-lane flyover ramp toward Bel Air, alleviating congestion for motorists exiting I-95 to MD 24 and MD 924.
As part of the project, there will be significant bridge improvements, such as the reconstruction of the Raphel Road, Bradshaw Road, Old Joppa Road and Clayton Road overpasses to accommodate the larger area needed for the ETLs. Additionally, the I-95 northbound bridges over the Big Gunpowder Falls, Little Gunpowder Falls and Winters Run will be widened and improved. Delivering on the community’s requests during the project planning process, MDTA will place five new noise walls along the corridor on both sides of I-95.
The original $210 million project was slated to provide a 7.75 mile, single-lane extension from north of MD 43 to MD 24.
