TIMONIUM, Md. — On Thursday, Maryland's State Highway Administration began the next phase of replacing dual bridges on I-83 over Padonia Rd. in Baltimore County.
The first half of the new bridges are ready for traffic however, a new split traffic pattern will be in both directions on I-83 for construction of the second half.
Crews are expected to move traffic barriers and re-mark the lanes on I-83 southbound beginning around 7 p.m. Thursday, with the new traffic patterns in effect by 5 a.m. Friday.
In case of inclement weather Thursday night, crews will set the new traffic pattern over the weekend. New patterns on the northbound side will be in place by late May.
One lane of eastbound Padonia Road is closed along with the ramp onto I-83 north. It's possible a single westbound lane on Padonia Rd. could close as well, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday.
The $22 million project is expected to last about six months, into the late fall.
