Protesters blocked morning traffic northbound and southbound I-95 to 395 ramp in opposition to a new youth detention center.
Maryland Transportation Authority spokesman Tamory Winfield says Interstate 395 from I-95 into the city was closed just before 9 a.m. Tuesday for about 45 minutes, leading to delays on I-95.
Tweets from Rev. Jamal Bryant show the protest is related to a new juvenile jail to be built in the city. The state approved the plans to build the $30 million, 60-bed jail on May 13th, according to The Baltimore Sun.
Protesters believe the money should be spent on education instead of the facility.
