Travelers' advisory

May 26, 1991

Here's what to look out for if you're traveling in the Baltimore metropolitan area this week, based on information from state and local highway agencies and the Mass Transit Administration. The list of highway projects includes only newly announced work, not ongoing construction, which is extensive on several highways, including I-95, U.S. 50/301 and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. Highway plans are subject to change because of weather or other factors.

New highway projects

Moravia Road One-way: Moravia will be made one-way eastbound between Harford Road and Walther Avenue for about three months because of a resurfacing project. Detour: southbound traffic proceeds south on Walther Avenue; west on Parkside Drive; north on Harford Road to Moravia. Northbound traffic will be detoured to northbound Harford Road.

There are no short-term closures for light rail construction for this week.

Light-rail construction

* Northbound Park Avenue at Mulberry Street: Park Avenue reduced to one lane because of construction.

* Dolphin Street between Howard Street and Mount Royal Avenue one-way westbound. Traffic coming from south via Martin Luther King Boulevard destined for northbound Jones Falls Expressway continues east to Chase Street, east on Chase to Cathedral Street, then north at the 1100 block of Cathedral to Mount Royal Avenue and the expressway.

Bus route changes

The MTA has scheduled these changes in bus routes. All buses will operate on a Sunday schedule tomorrow, Memorial Day. The Metro will be closed. For more information, call 539-5000; TTY for the hearing-impaired, 539-3497.
