Drivers leaving Baltimore City can now use Lombard Street to southbound Howard Street to access southbound I-395, which will help to relieve traffic congestion in the downtown area.

DOT officials have also reopened the remaining lanes of Pratt Street at the intersection of Howard Street.

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.
