Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has announced $461 million worth of transportation projects for the Baltimore region to provide traffic relief.

The funding includes adding lanes to 27 miles of Interstates 695 and 95.

The projects are:

  • $151 million for inner and outer loops of I-695 from I-70 to MD 43, shifting the inside shoulder into a new available lane of traffic. Adaptive ramp metering will be employed throughout the limits of the 19-mile project.
  • $100 million for the design and construction of a new configuration of the I-695 and I-70 interchange, often referred to as the “triple bridges.”
  • $210 million to extend the northbound I-95 Express Toll Lanes for 7.75 miles from north of MD 43 in Baltimore County to MD 24 in Harford County.
