Traffic patterns to change for Ravens game

Traffic patterns on streets around M&T Bank Stadium will be changed tomorrow to accommodate fans attending the football game between the Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals. Kickoff is 4:05 p.m.

Starting at noon, two lanes of northbound Russell Street will open for traffic headed to the stadium. The road is under construction and is normally down to one lane.

About 5:30 p.m., barriers will be moved to open up two lanes on southbound Russell Street, from Hamburg Street to the Westport exit, to help ease congestion for exiting fans.

At the start of the fourth quarter, officials say they will open up Russell Street to three lanes headed south.

Transportation officials warn that parking enforcement agents will be in neighborhoods near the stadium, where a parking permit is needed.

Impound lots for towed vehicles will remain open for two hours after the conclusion of the game. Call 410-396-3050.
