Road closures and alternate routes

Baltimore transportation officials announced the following closures late Monday:

* Light Street between Fayette and Lombard streets

* Lombard Street between Light and Calvert streets, with the exception of the far left lane. Those who use the open left lane will only be allowed to turn left at Light Street.

Commuters were told to expect “significant delays” and were encouraged to use alternate routes.

Those traveling west were encouraged to use Franklin Street, while those traveling south were encouraged to use Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Travelers were also encouraged to use MTA buses, Metro, light rail and the Charm City Circulator.

Those using MTA buses or the Circulator should go to or for updated information, as MTA lines and the Circulator’s Orange and Purple lines have been modified because of the road closures, officials said.
