SHA Closing Section of B-W Parkway for Two Upcoming Weekends

Commuters take note: crews will be replacing two overpass bridges in Linthicum.

A section of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, MD-295, in Linthicum will be shut down on two Friday nights and Saturday nights in October, according to a statement from the Maryland State Highway Administration.

Traffic crews will detour vehicles into single lanes during construction hours, using the ramps from West Nursery Road, but SHA is telling drivers to use other routes.

"For the safety of work crews and drivers, SHA is urging motorists to plan now for overnight travel on these weekends. Use MD 5-1-1 to determine the best alternate routes," said SHA Administrator Melinda B. Peters, in a press release.

According to the SHA, crews are currently constructing two bridges for the overpass of West Nursery Road in the median of MD-295, and they will replace the current bridges during the two weekend closures.

SHA announced the following closures of MD-295:

Friday, Oct. 19

  • One lane of MD-295 closed in each direction at 8 p.m.
  • All lanes of MD-295 closed in both directions at 11 p.m.
  • All lanes of MD-295 reopened Saturday at approximately 6 a.m.

  • One lane of MD-295 closed in each direction at 8 p.m.
  • All lanes of MD-295 closed in both directions at 11 p.m.
  • All lanes of MD-295 reopened Sunday at approximately 8 a.m.


Friday, Oct. 26

  • One lane of MD-295 closed in each direction at 8 p.m.
  • All lanes of MD-295 closed in both directions at 11 p.m.

A section of West Nursery Road will also be closed both weekends, beginning at 10 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19, through 8 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21. It will again be closed beginning at 10 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26, through 8 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 28.

SHA recommends drivers heading to Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport from the east use Interstate 97 to MD-176 and follow the "Airport Loop" signs. Drivers heading to BWI from Interstate 95 can use Interstate 195 to access the terminal.
