Citizens should be aware that modifications to the race routes have been madefor this year’s event.  The marathon will now end at McKeldin Square at the Inner Harbor, so this year’s course will be slightly different than in previous years.

Citizens are encouraged to plan ahead and allow additional travel time.  Traffic will be impacted in many city communities, and in order to minimize delays, motorists should use alternate routes outside of the race footprint.  This includes using roadways north of 33rd Street, south of McComas Street, west of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and east of Highland Avenue.

In order to help citizens plan their commutes on race day, an interactive road closure map has been created.  Citizens can click on this user-friendly map to see when city neighborhoods will be affected by the races throughout the day.  The map can be found at transportation.baltimorecity.gov.

On race day, motorists should pay close attention to posted parking restrictions, as vehicles parked in violation will be ticketed and towed.  Citizens with questions concerning the location of their vehicles should call 311.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to use public transportation during this event.  The Metro Subway is a great option for citizens traveling into and out of the city, as it will not be affected by the marathon.  The Charm City Circulator will modify its service hours during the event, and will operate on race day from 4:00 p.m. until midnight.

Details:

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists that upgrades to the dedicated bus lanes along Lombard and Pratt Streets will soon begin in downtown Baltimore.

As part of the MTA’s BaltimoreLINK project, modifications will be made to the existing bus lanes along Lombard and Pratt Streets to improve transit service. These designated lanes give priority to transit vehicles by separating them from other modes of traffic and allowing them to move through congested areas more quickly and efficiently.

Beginning July 17, 2016, upgrades will be made to bus lanes along Lombard Street from Market Place to Howard Street and on Pratt Street between Howard Street and Constellation Way. These dedicated lanes will be painted red for bus/transit use only and vehicles making right turns. 

During construction, overnight lane closures along Lombard and Pratt Streets will be implemented Sunday through Thursday, from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Improvements to the bus lanes will be completed several blocks at a time and some Charm City Circulator/MTA bus stops will be temporarily out-of-service as construction progresses. Transit passengers should pay close attention to posted signage and check transit websites for updated service information. Bus lane upgrades are expected to be complete in October, 2016 weather permitting.  

 

Once construction is completed, motorists should avoid utilizing the red bus lanes, except when making right turns. Failure to obey these traffic control devices could result in significant fines.

 

 

Street Closures in Harbor East:

Lancaster Street and Promenade between Central Ave. and Eden St. 

Work beginning Fall 2016

 

The street closures are due to pre-construction investigations as part of the Central Avenue Streetscape and Harbor Point Connector Bridge Project.

Traffic and pedestrian access will be maintained on Lancaster Street to the west of Central Avenue. Central Avenue will also be available for north and southbound traffic. Local access will be allowed via Eden Street for area residents and businesses.

This intersection will also be closed during construction of the bridge likely to begin in January 2017. Please check back for updates on timing and closures.

 

Aliceanna Street is the recommended alternative route.
