The next reassurance shield along eastbound is located after traffic merges onto Interstate 195 east from Interstate 95. Interstate 195 was signed on various maps through the 1980s, but the highway was originally designated as MD 166 northwest of U.S. 1 and as MD 46 southeast of MD 295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway). There was no connection between MD 166 and MD 46 until a bridge was built over the Patapsco River to link the two in June 1990. At that time, Interstate 195 was designated along the entire route, incorporating the south end of MD 166 and all of former MD 46. 05/01/04
