The problem: A lane closure on Lombard Street in downtown Baltimore is causing motorists to suddenly merge right into a busy lane of traffic to continue toward Greene Street. The backstory: Jacob A. Liss, who carpools from his home in Ridgely's Delight to his Hunt Valley office, has a standing joke with his fellow riders. The left lane of Lombard Street between Paca and Greene streets has been blocked for several months because of construction on a University of Maryland building. But there were no markings to alert drivers that traffic should shift to the right west of Paca Street.

Downtown drivers can expect about a year of traffic misery as city transportation officials launch an ambitious rebuilding project that will at times claim half the capacity of Lombard Street - Baltimore's principal westbound artery across the central business district. Beginning as early as May, the city will close some lanes of Lombard Street for the $2.6 million project, potentially the most disruptive downtown road work in recent years. Lombard, a block north of harbor-front Pratt Street, is one of Baltimore's busiest streets.

The owner of an aging downtown Baltimore hotel hopes to breathe new life into the property with a gritty, cool makeover that incorporates graffiti, sleek, white couches and a chain link fence. The multi-million dollar upgrade of the Brookshire Suites at Calvert and Lombard streets gives a new street twist to the 1958 building, which began as a parking garage but has been a hotel since the 1980s. Modus Hotels saw an opportunity to stand out in Baltimore, which has traditionally been dominated by big names with conventional reputations, such as Hilton, Marriott and Hyatt, said Aaron Katz, CEO of the Washington, D.C.-based owner of 11 hotels.

My wife and I volunteer at the National Aquarium on Saturday afternoons. This week we left at 11 a.m. ,and the trip from Columbia to the Inner Harbor took almost an hour in contrast to the usual 25 to 30 minutes ( "Grand Prix impact felt beyond racetrack," Sept. 1). It takes me less time than that to get to the Wilmer Eye Clinic in Baltimore County for an appointment. It was OK until arriving at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, where we completely stopped and then inched toward Baltimore Street.
