Moving Lane Closures on both Northbound and Southbound sides of Baltimore-Washington Parkway at Maryland Rte. 197 on Saturday, August 4, 2012; Expect Traffic Delays


Washington, D.C. - On Saturday, August 4, from 7:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. maintenance crews from the National Park Service (NPS), will implement moving lane closures on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway (B/W Parkway) at and in close vicinity to the exit ramp at Maryland Rte. 197 in order to perform mowing and vegetation removal operations.

From 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. the right-land lanes of the northbound B/W Parkway at Maryland Rte. 197 (Laurel/Bowie exit) will experience moving closures as maintenance crews perform work in close proximity to the northbound B/W Parkway.

From approximately 10:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., southbound motorists should also expect moving right lane closures on the southbound B/W Parkway at the Maryland Rte. 197 (Laurel/Fort Meade exit) to perform the same type of work along and adjacent to the southbound lanes of the B/W Parkway. Motorists are advised to be watchful in this area and to expect delays.

NPS maintenance work crews will implement these moving lane closures to clear vegetation to make the road way safe for motorists and to also create a safe work zone.

Construction signs and variable message boards have been posted to alert the driving public to the expected ramp/lane closures.

Inclement weather may require adjustments to the schedule, including the possibility of postponement. The NPS will continue to inform the public and the media of any adjustments in the work schedule. Every effort is being made to minimize traffic delays and accomplish the work in a timely manner. The NPS regrets any inconvenience and appreciates all motorists' understanding and patience.

The National Park Service has closed the northbound left shoulder of the Baltimore/Washington Parkway (B/W Parkway) near the I-95/I-495 junction to set jersey barriers to repair a sinkhole.

Construction crews will work on the left shoulder of the B/W Parkway and will not interfere with traffic. Motorists are urged to use caution as construction crews will be entering and leaving the work zone. Construction signs are in place to alert the public of the expected lane closure.

The approach shoulder pavement and sub-base, portions of the approach walls, and the curb will be removed, embankment placed and compacted to bring the sub-grade up to the proper grade before a new shoulder, sub-base and approach pavements are placed.
