The Baltimore Harbor Tunnel will be the object of renovations all summer.

If you're driving to your summer vacation destination in Maryland, the state transportation authority says it's best to avoid the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel.

Two weeks from today, a nearly $4 million construction project gets under way as crews replace concrete decking on a four-lane bridge south of the Interstate 895 tunnel toll plaza. The work will be done in four phases and is expected to be completed in October. Engineers believe the worst delays will come during the first two weeks of August, when the two southbound lanes close and two-way traffic shifts onto the renovated northbound lanes.

The Maryland Transportation Authority is urging motorists to use the Francis Scott Key Bridge or Fort McHenry Tunnel during the construction project.
