Nighttime Work to Close Three Lanes of I-495 Inner Loop

Prepare for backups on the inner loop of I-495/southbound I-95 between MD 5 and MD 414.

Starting on Feb. 24 at 10 p.m., the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will close three left lanes between MD 5 (Branch Avenue, Exit 7) and MD 414 (St. Barnabas Road, Exit 4).

The overnight closure will allow crews to perform emergency concrete deck work and repair a bridge joint on the I-495 Bridge over MD 414 this week. SHA expects this work to occur each night through Thursday (weather permitting). All lanes of traffic will reopen no later than 5 a.m. each day. Crews determined that additional work was needed after making pothole repairs on this section of the Capital Beltway.

SHA wants to remind drivers stay alert when traveling through a work zone – look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely.
