The Baltimore City Department of Transportation is advising motorists of traffic and parking modifications for the Orioles' home opener at Camden Yards.
The Baltimore Orioles will play a 3 p.m. game against the Minnesota Twins -- a game that's sold out.
Officials say that all parking restrictions and neighborhood permit parking regulations will be strictly enforced. Patrons who do not have a parking permit for any of the stadium lots are strongly encouraged to use public transportation.
With the season opener being held on a weekday afternoon, area garages will be full with monthly permit holders and downtown parking is expected to be limited. For that reason, city transportation officials are encouraging fans to take advantage of other options of getting to the ballpark. Those options include the metro subway, light rail, Park and Ride express bus services and the Charm City Circulator.
Baseball fans that choose to drive to the game should use parking facilities north of the stadium and avoid parking in area neighborhoods. Parking control agents will enforce all posted parking restrictions and vehicles parked in violation will be ticketed and towed. Patrons with questions concerning the location of their vehicles should call 311.
The following parking restrictions will be implemented on Friday, April 05, 2013 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 Friday, April 05, 2013 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
