Windlass Freeway

Windlass Freeway

The Windlass Freeway is a 1.5-mile (2.5 km) freeway in southeastern Baltimore County, Maryland, United States, forming a piece of Interstate 695 (the Baltimore Beltway). Plans were made to extend the road in both directions, west to Interstate 95 at Moravia Road in Baltimore and northeast to Chase, near the present end of Maryland Route 150. The freeway was to carry Maryland Route 149, but only the portion that carries I-695 was built, from the Patapsco Freeway (also I-695) at Chesaco Park northeast to the Southeast Freeway (I-695 and MD 702) near Essex.

Ramp stubs are present at the proposed west end at I-95 and Moravia Road, and at the present east end at the Southeast Freeway. The junction of the Windlass and Patapsco Freeways was originally built with provisions for extensions of each, but this has since been reconstructed. Because neither of these extensions was built, I-695 has no exit 37.
