Construction to close some lanes of Fayette Street


The Baltimore City Department of Transportation today announced evening lane closures along Fayette Street for intersection resurfacing this week.

Shifting lane closures on Fayette Street at the intersection of President Street are scheduled to begin tonight and continue through Wednesday, officials said.

Various lane closures will also be in effect at the intersection of Fayette and Gay streets on Wednesday and Thursday. All lane closures are in effect between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night, weather permitting, and at least one lane of through traffic will remain open in each direction during construction, according to the department.

Transportation officials also said the traffic pattern for another portion of Fayette Street is scheduled to change next week for continuing construction of the Fayette Street Streetscape project.

Starting June 15, Fayette Street will be reduced to one lane of through traffic in each direction from Broadway to President Street. Through traffic will be directed to use the east and westbound curb lanes.

Motorists traveling in the vicinity are encouraged to use alternate routes. Construction of the streetscape project is set to be completed by fall 2005, the department said.
