8-month ramp closure for SB I-695 TO MD 144

Baltimore, MD -- Beginning Monday, August 5 at 9 p.m., the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will close and detour the ramp from the outer loop (southbound) I-695 to MD 144 (Frederick Road) for eight months.  The work is part of the $68 million I-695 Southwest Outer Loop project and is necessary for crews to reconstruct and widen the ramp to meet the new alignment of the outer loop/southbound I-695.

Motorists traveling from the outer loop/southbound I-695 to MD 144 will be detoured one mile south to the MD 372 (Wilkens Avenue) interchange. Motorists will use the ramp system to access the inner loop (northbound) I-695 back to the I-695/MD 144 interchange.

Digital message signs at the MD 144 and MD 372 interchanges will alert travelers of the temporary ramp closure and detour. Weather permitting, the ramp will re-open in April 2020.

The entire I-695 Southwest Outer Loop widening project is scheduled to be complete late fall 2021.
