Motivational event to draw thousands downtown

May 03, 2010

A motivational speaking event at the First Mariner Arena Tuesday is expected to tie up downtown traffic and jam parking garages in the central business district for most of the day.

According to the Baltimore Department of Transportation, thousands of people are expected to attend the "Get Motivated Business Seminar" at the arena, increasing the normal volume of traffic downtown. Officials are predicting traffic tie-ups during the morning and evening peak commuting hours as a result of the event, which will last between 8 a.m. and 4:45 p.m.

The transportation department is urging attendees to take light rail to the event, noting that free parking is available at several stations, including North Linthicum, Cromwell and Patapsco Avenue.
