Officials say the lanes reopened on Monday at noon after crews worked for weeks to repair the damages caused by an underground collapse. They say progress has been made towards their efforts to restore the roadway.

With the opening of lanes on Pratt Street, DOT says southbound Howard Street will remain closed from Lombard to Conway Streets. They say traffic going on southbound I-395 cannot use Lombard to Howard Street, but can utilize Martin Luther King Boulevard, Lombard to Light or Lombard to Sharp Street to Conway Street to I-395.

Drivers traveling in the downtown area are encouraged to plan additional commute time as repair work continues.

MDOT MTA’s Light RailLink Service remains suspended between the North Avenue and Camden Yards stations. Light RailLink Service from the south to Camden Yards is running as scheduled.
