City street closures planned for Opening Day today

April 03, 2006

Opening Day for the Orioles today will mean altered traffic patterns for city motorists. The Baltimore Department of Transportation has announced parking restrictions, street closures and modified routes near Camden Yards.

The following streets will be closed starting at noon: Camden Street from Howard Street to Russell Street and Lee Street from Ramp D to Russell Street. Hamburg Street from the Russell Street viaduct, site of construction, will be made one-way to traffic heading east before the game and one-way headed west after the game.

The game starts at 3:05 p.m.

Parking will be restricted along the following streets tomorrow from 6 a.m. to midnight: both sides of Pratt Street from Martin Luther King Boulevard to Paca Street; the east side of Greene Street from Lombard Street to Washington Boulevard; the east side of Eutaw Street from Lombard Street to Pratt Street; and the north side of Conway Street from Charles Street to Sharp Street.

Also, because of construction of the Convention Center Hotel, new pedestrian routes have been set up to help fans navigate Eutaw Street, which is blocked. Maps of the new ramps, which skirt the construction project, are posted

City officials also are reminding fans that parking is prohibited in neighborhoods near the stadium and that the rules will be strictly enforced throughout the baseball season. Violators will be ticketed and towed to the impound lot on the Fallsway.
