Transportation Act Delivers Project to Replace Two Bridges and Improve Access to Inner Loop of I-695
The two bridges along the Inner Loop of I-695 that will be replaced were built in 1957 as part of the original construction of the Baltimore Beltway. Both bridges are nearing the end of their service life. The new structures will carry the same number of through lanes along the Inner Loop, though they will be wide enough to accommodate future widening of I-695.
