Construction on the Monroe Street Viaduct is complete, Baltimore transportation officials announced yesterday, marking the first phase of the city's $30 million road improvement plan for the Russell Street corridor. The $11 million in repairs and additions to the viaduct -- which serves as a gateway into Baltimore -- are expected to help motorists immediately by relieving congestion into downtown, traffic officials said. "You should see improvements right away because the viaduct is a bypass to downtown traffic, and it's a direct route into the city," said David Brown, a spokesman for the Baltimore Department of Transportation.
