Ramps at I-97 in Anne Arundel County Sunday Overnight Work Will Continue Through April
The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin roadway surface improvements on the Benfield Boulevard ramps to I-97 in the Millersville area of Anne Arundel County on Sunday, March 28. At 9 p.m., crews will patch the Benfield Boulevard ramp to northbound I-97. Work is expected to be complete by 5 a.m. Monday, March 29.
Through mid-April, crews will be patching, milling and resurfacing deteriorated sections along the interchange ramps. Between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sundays through Thursdays, motorists can expect posted detours in the impacted areas. In the upcoming weeks, the following locations will be addressed:
- Southbound I-97 to eastbound Benfield Boulevard
- Southbound I-97 to westbound Benfield Boulevard
- Northbound I-97 to Benfield Boulevard/Veterans Highway
- Benfield Boulevard to southbound I-97
MDOT SHA’s contractor, Allan Myers Construction of Fallston, is performing the work. Portable variable message signs will provide advance notification.
Motorists will follow a signed detour for each nightly ramp closure, directing traffic to either New Cut Road or MD 178.
MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our customers. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on driving, and look for reduced speed limits as well as other driving pattern changes. Drive like you work here and slowdown in construction zones.
