MARC delays and parking changes
MARC riders are still going to feel the impact of yesterday's storms as they head out today. CSX has issued a severe weather alert for the Camden and Brunswick lines through midday Friday, and potentially through Friday night, due to flash flood conditions.
A severe weather alert slows train speeds to 40 miles per hour, and trains would be required to approach all bridges over bodies of water at a very reduced speed. The amount of time spent delayed varies from train to train, but Brunswick Line trains cross over more bodies of water than trains on the Camden Line.
Additionally, the American Legion parking lot in Laurel has been closed Friday due to expected flooding, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.
The MTA recommends travelers needing parking head to the Savage, Bowie State or Muikirk stations. All tickets for Laurel are always honored from those three stations, whether they're one-way, weekly or monthly tickets.
