Interstate 70 starts at a Baltimore park and ride and extends all the way to Cove Fort, Utah. Interstate 81 runs through Hagerstown. Interstate 83 has its southern terminus in Baltimore, a route for travelers from there to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

It is the main connection between BWI and highways leading to Baltimore, Annapolis, and Washington, D.C. Interstate 270 is known as the Washington National Pike, and makes up the easternmost stretch of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Highway. Interstate 370 is know as a “spur” route of I-270. Interstate 395 - Also known as Cal Ripken Way, I-395 is an auxiliary route that connects I-95 with downtown Baltimore and the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Interstate 495 (Capital Beltway) runs all the way around the nation’s capital through Virginia and Maryland. Interstate 595 connects Washington D.C. with Annapolis. Interstate 695 is officially named the McKeldin Beltway, but it’s popularly referred to as the Baltimore Beltway or simply 695. It extends all the way around the city of Baltimore. Interstate 795 links Baltimore’s northwest suburbs with the city. It is also known as the Northwest Expressway. Interstate 895 is known as the Harbor Tunnel Thruway. I-895 is a toll road that crosses the Patapsco River via the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel.
To support residents and visitors alike, the Maryland Department of Transportation provides a high-quality site with road conditions, maps, and traffic cameras.
The climate in Maryland is mild, ranging from the low mid-20s in January to the mid-80s in in July. While snowfalls do occur from time to time, local governments don’t keep a major fleet of plows, so traffic can become quite chaotic during inclement weather.
