Baltimore City Department of Transportation Press Release: 

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists that the Triples Bridges Project over MD 295 in Baltimore City is now underway, and starting next week, the Annapolis Road Bridge will close for construction.

The Triple Bridges Project includes the replacement of the Annapolis Road, Maisel Street and Waterview Avenue bridges over MD 295.  The $40 million project includes full replacement of the three bridges, along with the installation of an auxiliary lane on MD 295, improvements to the Waterview Avenue exit ramps, and the resurfacing of Annapolis Road from Patapsco Avenue to the Waterview Avenue Bridge.  The project started back in January, and construction activities will continue through early 2023.

During this initial phase of construction, the Annapolis Road Bridge will be the first structure to close to motorists.  Starting on Monday, March 04, 2019, the Annapolis Road Bridge will close to through traffic between Patapsco Avenue and Wegworth Lane with detours in effect, WEATHER PERMITTING.  This bridge will remain closed for approximately two years while a new structure is being built.  Suggested detour routes are listed below and a detailed map can be found on the project website at  Citizens are encouraged to be prepared for the bridge closure, by planning an alternate detour route and allowing additional travel time.

Then, on or about Monday, March 18, 2019 lane closures will be implemented along both north and southbound MD 295, and MD 295 will be reduced to two lanes of through traffic in each direction throughout the majority of the project.

Lane closures due to construction will significantly impact traffic along MD 295.   Variable message signs have been placed in the area to alert motorists of the project.  Citizens should be on the watch for various traffic pattern changes and construction activities along this portion of the expressway.  Lane closures along MD 295 will cause congestion and delays, so motorists are strongly encouraged to allow additional travel time and to use alternate routes.

Throughout the project, construction schedules, updates, lane/road closures and detour maps can be found on the project website at  Citizens are encouraged to visit the site and plan ahead to avoid traveling through construction activities.
