Construction along the I-295 West Beltway at the Buckman Bridge is part of a safety initiative to convey which lanes are free flowing, slowed or blocked on the bridge. Programable overhead electronic boards and additional CCTV cameras will be installed at several locations, on both directions of the bridge to support lane use, improve traffic flow and enhance safety.
