Conway Street to Close

Downtown Grand Prix Construction Work to Intensify Monday

Conway Street Closure

New traffic pattern will significantly reduce traffic capacity:

Conway Street Closure: Monday, June 6

Baltimore City officials have announced that Conway Street will be closed to both eastbound and westbound traffic between Light and Charles Streets beginning at 5 a.m., weather permitting.

During the closure, motorists trying to access westbound Conway Street from Light Street will be detoured onto Lee Street and Charles Street, then to Conway Street. All eastbound Conway Street traffic will be detoured onto Charles Street.
In addition to the Conway Street closure, lane closures along southbound Light Street will move to the opposite side of the roadway.

These closures will last approximately two weeks.

Please note that these temporary traffic patterns will significantly reduce traffic capacity in this vicinity. Construction work will severely impact the movement of traffic in the Downtown area and commuters are strongly encouraged to use alternate routes.

Alternate routes for outbound traffic include:
• Lombard Street to Howard Street Greene Street or Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard
• Fayette Street to Liberty/Sharp Streets to Conway Street
• Fayette Street to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard

Suggested alternate routes for inbound traffic include:
• I-395 to Howard Street to Baltimore Street
• I-395 to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard to Baltimore Street, Mulberry Street or Druid Hill Avenue/Centre Street
