If you're going to the Oriole baseball opener Monday, pay attention to parking and stopping restrictions on streets leading to and from Memorial Stadium, or run the risk of having your vehicle towed.
That's the advice of city transportation officials who are gearing up for the bumper-to-bumper traffic.
Transportation officials are expecting 50,000 people at the game between the Orioles and Chicago White Sox. Game time is 2:05 p.m.
For nostalgia buffs, this Opening Day may be a little special. It will be the last in Memorial Stadium. The new stadium in Camden Yards is scheduled to open in time for the 1992 season.
Parking will be available on several lots near the stadium on East 33rd Street and shuttle service will be available from one of these lots. Traffic patterns will be altered along 33rd Street before and after the game.
Don't park or stop on the following streets during these hours:
* Calvert Street, east side, 28th Street to 33rd Street, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
* University Parkway, south side, Calvert Street to 33rd Street, noon to 3 p.m.
* St. Paul Street, west side, 29th Street to 31st Street, 4 to 7 p.m.
* Light Street, west side, Baltimore Street to Lombard Street, 3 to 9 p.m.
* Lombard Street, south side, Light Street to Charles Street, 3 to 9 p.m.
Traffic along 33rd Street will be one-way eastbound, starting two hours before the game. Traffic will be one-way westbound after the game.
Parking will be available at Venable Park, adjacent to the stadium, and on the old Eastern High School lot on 33rd Street, opposite the stadium.
Additional parking will be available around Lake Montebello, not far from the stadium. The state Mass Transit Administration is offering shuttle service to and from Lake Montebello. The fare is 25 cents. Additional parking will be available on the lots of public schools near the stadium.
