This was a $210 million interchange reconstruction project north of Baltimore City, MD. The reconstructed I-95 and I-695 interchange was designed to eliminate an outdated braided interchange. The project also included demolition of existing bridges and roadway. This project required major traffic control components to maintain traffic on I-95 and I-695 during construction.
