Baltimore-Washington Parkway NASA Exit to Close Temporarily
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. will be temporarily closing its Parkway Gate to all traffic from April 16-June 16, 2007. This closure is necessary to facilitate a minor construction project.

Both north and south bound exit ramps on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, also known as Maryland state route 295, will be blocked for two months. Employees wishing to use the Baltimore-Washington Parkway to access Goddard should exit at the Powder Mill Road or Route 193/Greenbelt Road exits. This will result in additional traffic on these roads.

"During this time, no vehicles will be able to enter or exit through the Parkway gate," said Robert Raimond of NASA Goddard's Security Division. "Alternate means of entry include the Main Gate on Greenbelt Road and the North Gate on Hubble Road. Both these gates are open 24 hours. The South Gate located at ICESat Road can also be accessed Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m."

The Parkway gate entrance is used only by badged NASA employees and contractors who work at Goddard. Those visiting Goddard should continue to enter at the Main Gate located on Greenbelt Road.

"This closure is necessary for the Facilities Management Division to complete security and roadway upgrades to the areas near the gate house," Raimond said.

NASA's GSFC appreciates everyone's patience during the closure. Any questions can be directed to the Goddard Security Division at Tel. 301-286-7233.
