Interstate 83 traffic will be detoured overnight Monday and Tuesday in northern Maryland, according to the State Highway Administration.

That’s because crews will be setting beams for the Middletown Road bridge in northern Baltimore County, the agency said in a news release.

Here is when the detour will take effect:

Monday night

Time: The left lane of I-83 South will close at 7 p.m., and both southbound lanes will close at 10 p.m.

Detour: Traffic will be detoured to the Middletown Road ramp. Drivers will make a left and then travel down the ramp to southbound I-83.

All clear: I-83 southbound will reopen by 4 a.m.

Tuesday night

Time: The left lane of I-83 North will close at 9 p.m. Both lanes will close at 10 p.m.

Detour: Traffic will be detoured off at the Middletown Road ramp. Drivers will be directed across the road to the ramp to I-83 North.

All clear: Crews will reopen I-83 North by 4 a.m.

Drivers should plan extra time into their travel schedule, the news release states. Or they can use Maryland 45 (York Road) as an alternate route.

    Of all weeks of the year to do this…Thanksgiving week when EVERYONE will be traveling. Not like this road project has not been ongoing for well over a year now. How about they finish one project before they start another? A high school student could figure plan road work out better than this.
