Night work is expected to disrupt traffic in the White Marsh area late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
Between 10 p.m. on May 22 and 5 a.m. on May 23, as part of the , Exit 67B from northbound Interstate 95 to westbound MD 43 (White Marsh Boulevard) will be closed, Maryland Transportation Authority officials announced.
A detour is planned from Exit 67A (eastbound White Marsh Boulevard), to eastbound MD 7 (Philadelphia Road), to westbound White Marsh Boulevard.
The ultimate goal of the project is to replace the MD 43 bridges over I-95 and attach planned toll lanes to MD 43. When complete, drivers may travel on existing lanes of I-95 at no additional cost, or may use express lanes by paying a toll, according to an MDTA release.
The White Marsh portion of the project comes at a $142.6 million cost and is expected to create 400 new jobs, officials stated.
The total project, which stretches from north of White Marsh along I-95 to south of the Interstate 895/Moravia Road interchange, comes at a $1.03 billion cost and is expected to be finished by 2014.
