BALTIMORE - If Russell Street is a part of your regular commute, it's going to be a bad one for the next several weeks.
Construction of the new Horseshoe Casino is moving along quickly and they're at a point where they have to start rerouting utilities under the street – a street that happens to be one of the busiest in the city.
The city department of transportation says most of the backup will be from the ramp off of Interstate 95 as drivers will have to make a complete stop before they merge. They're suggesting commuters find another way to get into the city.
Suggested alternate routes: Interstate 395, Key Highway or MLK Boulevard.
The city says the project is needed to hook the casino into the city's power grid.
The project is expected to continue through July of next year.
