The State Highway Administration will temporarily close all lanes of the outer loop of the Beltway (I-695) at Charles Street Thursday night.

Starting at 9 p.m., one lane will close. Then at 10 p.m., two lanes will close. By midnight, all lanes will be closed and traffic will be detoured through the Charles Street/Bellona Avenue roundabout and back onto the outer loop I-695.

In addition to the temporary outer loop I-695 closure, the right ramp from northbound Charles Street to the outer loop will be closed at midnight. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m.Friday.

The closures are necessary for the continued work on the replacement of the Charles Street Bridge. SHA urges motorists who plan to travel along northbound Charles Street to reach the outer loop to alternatively use Kenilworth Avenue to West Road to the York Road/Baltimore Beltway interchange.
