There could be overnight delays on Interstate 95 in Maryland in the coming weeks as work continues on the interchange between I-95 and the Intercounty Connector.

Construction on the interchange started this week. It will cause temporary lane closures on a stretch of I-95 between Route 198 in Laurel and Route 212 in Beltsville sporadically between now and late September.

A spokesman for the state highway administration tells the Baltimore Sun on weeknights, some southbound lanes could close as early as 7 p.m., while northbound lanes could close as early as 8 p.m. All lanes are expected to reopen by 7 a.m at the latest for the morning rush hour.

The Intercounty Connector will link the I-270 corridor with U-S Route 1. The first segment from I-270 to Georgia Avenue is due to be completed in the fall of 2010. The whole road is expected to be open by early 2012.
