Baltimore commuters: Charles Street open after rush-hour closure

A road closure made Baltimore's morning rush hour much worse Thursday morning.

Charles Street was closed between Lombard and Baltimore Streets, the city’s Department of Transportation tweeted early Thursday morning. Just before 9 a.m., DOT tweeted that Charles Street had reopened in that area. The department also said Redwood Street between Light and Charles Streets was open.
