As Monday is the Orioles’ Opening Day, the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) is urging travelers to take public transportation when traveling to the game or to the city for other reasons as many road closures will take effect later Monday. The Light Rail, the Metro Subway and local bus systems are all suggested options for getting into town a little easier on Monday.

Baltimore’s Department of Transportation (DOT) says all parking restrictions and neighborhood permit parking regulations will be “strictly enforced” and that garages will be full with monthly permit holders; anyone without a parking pass is urged to take public transportation.

If a car did get towed, the driver can call 311 to find out its location.

DOT issued the following restrictions and closings for Monday:

The following parking restrictions will be implemented on Monday, April 03, 2017 beginning at 10:00 a.m.:

                East side of Greene Street from Lombard Street to Washington Boulevard

                East side of Eutaw Street from Pratt to Lombard Streets

                Camden Street from Howard to Russell Streets

                North side of Conway Street from Charles to Sharp Streets


The following streets will be closed on Monday, April 03, 2017 starting at 1:00 p.m.:

                Eutaw Street from Camden to Pratt Streets

                Camden Street from Howard to Russell Streets

                Lee Street from Ramp D to Russell Street

                Washington Boulevard from Paca to Greene Streets

                Hamburg Street from Russell to Leadenhall Streets


The MTA says both train systems will operate at “peak-level” service all day to ease congestion and have additional staff working at stations.
