Opening day for the Orioles is almost here and if you plan on going to the game, here is the parking plan. 

The Baltimore Orioles will play their home opening game against the Minnesota Twins on Thursday starting at 3:05 p.m. and parking restrictions and residential permit parking regulations will be strictly enforced in the vicinity of the stadium.  

People who don't have a parking permit for any of the stadium lots are strongly encouraged to use public transportation. Since the season opener is being held on a weekday afternoon, area garages will be full with monthly permit holders and downtown parking will be limited.  With a variety of transit options including the Metro Subway, Light Rail, Park and Ride express bus services and the Charm City Circulator, fans can easily utilize mass transit from numerous locations in and around Baltimore.  

Baseball fans that drive to the game should use commercial facilities north of the stadium and avoid parking in area neighborhoods or else your car could be towed.

The following streets will be closed on Thursday starting around 1:00 p.m.: 

  • Eutaw Street from Pratt to Camden Streets
  • Camden Street from Howard to Russell Streets
  • Lee Street from Ramp D to Russell Street
  • Hamburg Street from Russell to Leadenhall Streets
  • Washington Boulevard from Paca to Greene Streets (closure starts at 10:00 a.m.)
  • Left lane closure along northbound Russell Street from Lee to Pratt Streets

The following parking restrictions will be implemented on Thursday 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
  • North side of Conway Street from Charles to Sharp Streets 

Special Transportation Enforcement Officers will assist with the movement of traffic in the downtown area.
