Two-Way Traffic in Harbor Tunnel Next Week

The Maryland Transportation Authority [MDTA] announced that the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel [Interstate 895] will have overnight closures for Monday, Sept. 20 to Thursday, Sept. 23.

During tunnel closures at the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel, drivers may experience 15 – 20 minute delays while two-way operations (during which one lane of southbound and northbound traffic is directed into the tunnel that remains open) are implemented. Closure times are dependent on traffic volumes.

The Southbound Tunnel is scheduled to be closed at 8:30 p.m. on the evenings of Monday, Sept. 20, through Thursday, Sept. 23, for contractor operations. Two-way operations will be in the northbound tunnel. Re-opening is scheduled to take place at 4:30 a.m. the following morning.

MDTA reminds motorists to obey speed limits and stay in one lane.

This is a tentative schedule that is subject to change at any time due to weather, traffic conditions, emergency incidents or priority closures.
