BALTIMORE — The northbound bore of the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I-895) will continuously close through the weekend.

Two-way traffic (one adjacent lane in each direction) will operate in the southbound bore.

The Maryland Transportation Authority is reminding drivers to obey speed limits and stay in their lane.

MDTA says weather permitting, the northbound bore will be closed from Friday at 8:30 p.m. to March 2 at 4:30 a.m.

Crews will be performing work on the fire suppression system. The closure is part of the MDTA three-year, $189 million I-895 Bridge Project to replace the 60-year-old bridge and Holabird Avenue exit ramp north of the Harbor Tunnel and to rehabilitate the Harbor Tunnel.

The project began in April 2018 and is expected to be completed in summer 2021. In the coming weeks, the southbound bridge will close and two-way traffic will operate on the newly rebuilt northbound bridge with one lane open in each direction.
