Expanded $1.1 Billion I-95 Toll Lane Plan announced for Harford, Baltimore Counties

A plan to extend express toll lanes on Interstate 95 north of Baltimore into Harford County will be greatly expanded from what was originally proposed, it was announced Friday morning by the Maryland Transportation Authority, which operates the highway. The $1.1 billion project will add two northbound toll lanes in the center of the highway from just beyond the White Marsh Boulevard/Route 43 interchange where existing express lanes end to just north of the Route 24 interchange in Abingdon, a distance of about 10 miles, according to MDTA. The MDTA originally planned to build a single express lane from White Marsh Boulevard approximately 7 miles north to just across the Little Gunpowder Falls in Harford County, part of Gov. Larry Hogan’s goal to help relieve congestion on the interstate highway north of Baltimore. I-95 is a major commuter artery for tens of thousands of Harford County residents who work in Baltimore County, Baltimore City and points south. Harford County and other Baltimore region commuters spend an average of just over 30 minutes going each way to work, the eighth-longest among major metropolitan areas in the country, according to 2017 U.S. Census data, reported on earlier this week by The Baltimore Sun.

Maryland to invest $890M to expand I-95 express lanes into Harford County

Two more express toll lanes are coming to northbound Interstate 95 leading into Harford County, after the state announced Friday morning that it would invest an additional $890 million in the project.   Gov. Larry Hogan initially announced plans in December for a $210 million project to create a 7.75 mile, single lane extension as part of his Baltimore Traffic Relief Plan. But now the expanded $1.1 billion project will see the construction of two express lanes, stretching for more than 10 miles from north of Maryland Route 43 in Baltimore County to north of Route 24 in Harford County. Construction is expected to begin early next year, according to a Maryland Transportation Authority release. Click here to continue reading…   Credit:  Jessica Iannetta | Baltimore Business Journal Please follow and like...
