HARFORD COUNTY - The Maryland Transportation Authority is preparing for a third public input session concerning the proposed toll rate ranges for the I-95 Express Toll Lanes Northbound Extension and I-695 ramps.

The session is scheduled to occur during the board's meeting on Thursday, June 29, at 9:00 a.m. at the Maryland Transportation Authority, located at 2310 Broening Highway, Baltimore. The forum will invite public discourse before the board voting on the final toll rate range recommendation.

The board will receive the final toll rate range recommendation during this meeting, as put forward by the Maryland Transportation Authority staff.

Individuals must submit a pre-registration form by 5 p.m., Tuesday, June 27, to participate in the upcoming meeting.

The I-95 Express Toll Lanes Northbound Extension project aims to alleviate traffic congestion and improve safety. The project, spanning almost 12 miles of northbound I-95 from the MD 43 interchange in Baltimore County to north of MD 24 in Harford County, will involve various improvements, including new noise walls, bridge reconstruction, transit services at new park and ride lots, and the reconfiguration of interchanges at MD 152 and MD 24.

The current express lane starts at the 895 and 95 split and runs to White Marsh. Under the ETL extension, 12 miles would be added. According to the MTA, the current proposal would implement the same rate at the existing ETLs, which can vary based on the type of vehicle and E-Z pass plan.

The proposed toll rate ranges can be reviewed online. Those requiring assistance, including special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or language translation services, can contact the agency's Title VI Officer.
