I-95 Roadwork South of the Ft. McHenry Tunnel Will Cause Congestion in Downtown Baltimore

The Maryland Transportation Authority is scheduled to resume major construction along mainline I-95 and ramps between the Fort McHenry Tunnel and Caton Avenue in Baltimore City. The $64 million preservation project was launched in March, 2014 and construction will continue through the fall of 2015.

I-95 Roadwork Alternate Route Map 1

o  When leaving the city via I-95, motorists are advised to enter I-95 beyond the congested area.  This would mean entering northbound I-95 from Key Highway or better yet north of the tunnel via Pulaski Highway or Boston Street.  For southbound I-95 the best places to enter are Caton Avenue, Washington Blvd, or  Russell Street.

I-95 Roadwork Alternate Route Map 2

o  Those who continue to use I-95 to enter Baltimore City should exit I-95 prior to the congested area.  For northbound I-95 this would mean exiting at Caton Avenue, Washington Blvd or Russell Street.  For southbound I-95, it means exiting prior to the tunnel and using Pulaski Highway, O’Donnell St/Boston Street or exiting at Key Highway.

26th Street Incident

26th Street Image

At approximately 4:15 on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 the retaining wall along the south side of 26th Street between Charles and St. Paul Streets collapsed onto the CSX tracks below A variety of city agencies including CSX personnel immediately responded to the scene. Debris and soil fell onto the CSX tracks, which damaged the railway and stopped all train traffic in this area. Utility lines including water, waste water, and gas lines were also damaged. Residents along this stretch of 26th Street were evacuated from homes as a precautionary measure and the roadway was closed to traffic.

On May 3rd installation of a temporary wall began. By June 7th, 65 piles had been installed, stabilizing the ground and allowed the residents to re-occupy their homes. The damaged utility lines had either been replaced or temporarily by-passed.

On June 9th, excavation work began to remove the debris and soil so that work could begin to reconstruct the permanent wall. Excavation is now nearly complete and we will be pouring the concrete for the first part of the foundation of the new permanent wall by the end of this week. This now begins the process of reconstructing the permanent wall.
