The exit ramp from the outer loop of Interstate 695 to Frederick Road will re-open again Nov. 29, according to officials from the Maryland State Highway Administration.
David Buck, an SHA spokesperson, confirmed the ramp at Exit 13 to Frederick Road is scheduled to re-open next Thursday at 5 a.m. The ramp has been closed for several weeks due to a rebuilding of the first half of the bridge on Frederick Road over the beltway.
"It hasn't been a major issue because traffic is able to use either Edmondson or Wilkens," Buck said. "Clearly, this provides direct access into downtown Catonsville."
After the ramp re-opens, traffic on Frederick Road itself will then be switched over to the new bridge. And for one night, next Wednesday into Thursday morning, the ramp from Frederick Road back on to the outer loop will be closed from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. while crews work on shifting traffic.
That exit also is going to close for four to six weeks starting at some point in mid-December while the rest of the bridge is torn down.
Buck said they're expecting the entire rebuilding of the bridge to be finished next Fall.
"Overall the project has gone well," Buck said.
