Interstate 95 North
North from the wye interchange with Interstate 895 north, I-95 (John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway) expands with four I-95 Express Toll Lanes (ETL) and eight General Purpose Lanes. 01/04/19
Interstate 95 reenters Baltimore County through the Rosedale community. 01/04/19
A four level systems interchange (Exit 64) joins I-95 with Interstate 695 (Baltimore Beltway) in 1.5 miles. 01/04/19
The $1.1 billion reconstruction of I-95 for the I-95 ETL1 commenced on on January 22, 2007. The project expanded the freeway outward and converted the directional interchange with left exit ramps at I-695 into a multi level exchange with high speed flyovers. 01/04/19
Two lanes depart from I-95 north a third of a mile beyond the Hazelwood Avenue overpass for Interstate 695 (Baltimore Beltway) north to the suburbs of Overlea, Parkville and Towson and south to Essex and Dundalk. 01/04/19
The reconfigured Beltway interchange shifted Exit 64 one half mile west from the previous gore point for Exit 64A to I-695 east by 2010. Kenwood Avenue (MD 588) passes over Interstate 95 at the separation. 01/04/19

I-695 turns northwest to meet Interstate 83 at Lutherville and southeast around the Back River to Sparrows Point and the tolled Francis Scott Key Bridge. 01/04/19
The previous design of the exchange, where the roadways of both I-95 and I-695 switched sides, was similar to Malfunction Junction in Birmingham, Alabama where I-20/59 and I-65 converged. 06/25/10
Funding issues delayed construction of the flyovers connecting the Baltimore Beltway with the I-95 ETL. A stub was included in the design of the flyover from I-695 north to I-95 south for the ETL. 07/06/10
Construction begun in Spring 2008 at MD 43 reconfigured the cloverleaf interchange to include new ramps from the Interstate 95 Express Lanes. Work also rebuilt 1.1 miles of MD 43.
Sign changes made for Exit 67 added Middle River for the southern extension of MD 43 in place of references for U.S. 1 and 40. 06/25/10
MD 43 (White Marsh Boulevard) forms a controlled-access expressway west from Interstate 95 to White Marsh Town Center, U.S. 1 (Bel Air Road) at Putty Hill, and I-695 north at Parkville. 06/25/10
Separate ramps formerly connected I-95 north with MD 43 (White Marsh Boulevard). Exit 67 now leaves the Interstate 95 mainline where Exit 67A did for MD 43 east to U.S. 40 at White Marsh. MD 43 was extended southward from U.S. 40 in 2007 to MD 150 (Eastern Boulevard) at Middle River. 06/25/10

The right lane of Interstate 95 north forms a distributor lane to MD 24/924 at Exit 77. 12/21/12
Changes made to Exit 77 during 2011-12 added a left turn from Exit 77A for MD 24 north to Bel Air. Exit 77B defaults motorists onto the MD 24 ramp to MD 924 (Emmorton Road) and Tollgate Road by a number of big box stores. Both roads parallel MD 24 (Vietnam Veterans Highway) northward by a number of subdivisions. 12/21/12
