The ramp from southbound Hanover Street to southbound Interstate 95 remained closed yesterday evening and likely will be closed this morning while engineers repair damage from yesterday's early-morning tanker fire, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority police. The South Baltimore bridge was shut down about 3 a.m. after a tanker-truck overturned on the ramp, leading to traffic delays forcing the Maryland Transit Administration to temporarily shut down the Camden MARC train line between Baltimore and Washington.

There are brief moments of peace here. The caw of seagulls fills the air. Ducks wade in the water. A gauzy haze shrouds the city buildings glistening from afar. More so, there is the constant whiz of cars and trucks as they rumble across the concrete span of the Hanover Street bridge. This is not your idyllic vision of fishing. But in a city where crab is king, this is where many a man - even a woman or two - will come to haul in blue crabs from the murky water below. Call it crabbing, city-style, where the exhaust and fumes of trucks whizzing by don't matter, nor does that not-so-pleasant odor wafting up from the Patapsco River.

Hundreds of people gathered in Federal Hill on Monday night to remember three young people killed late Sunday when police say they were struck by a stolen vehicle. Holding candles and wearing shirts adorned with the victims' pictures, there were attempts to give testimonials and sing "Amazing Grace," but the group — representing generations from the Morrell Park neighborhood — was at a collective loss of words. Most just needed a shoulder to cry on. "They were just kids," said neighbor Tony Beckner, 40. "You have three kids doing nothing wrong, and you're gonna take them from us?"

Bending over backward to accommodate Hollywood, Baltimore plans to close the Hanover Street bridge Saturday and possibly Monday so a production company can stage a scene in which a boat appears to land on the structure. The city's Department of Transportation announced yesterday that the bridge between South Baltimore and Cherry Hill will close at 3 a.m. Saturday to allow Los Angeles-based Revolution Studios to film a scene for the movie XXX: State of the Union. The span - formally called the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge - will reopen from 6 a.m. to midnight Sunday for Ravens game traffic, but then could close for another 24 hours if the film crew still needs the bridge.

THOUSANDS of NAACP members descended on Baltimore for their convention this week, prompting visits to the major tourist attractions that line the Pratt Street corridor. What most of the hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit the Inner Harbor each year don't realize is that they are walking on sacred ground, where countless thousands of men, women, and children suffered during Baltimore's darkest hour. Between 1815 and 1860, traders in Baltimore made the port one of the leading disembarkation points for ships carrying slaves to New Orleans and other ports in the deep South.

City engineers and surveyors will begin more regularly inspecting infrastructure such as retaining walls and streets near railroad tracks after the collapse of a wall in Charles Village last week, officials said Friday. The initiative will focus on structures not already covered by federal inspection mandates or state policies, which have long been in place for major bridges and overpasses, said William Johnson, director of the city's transportation department. "We're going to have a whole different level of focus on looking at these structures on a regular basis," Johnson said.
