Traffic Crunch in Baltimore on Saturday

While the economic summit has the potential to disrupt travel in downtown Washington on Saturday, Baltimore will have its own traffic snarling event that day: the Navy-Notre Dame football game at M&T Bank Stadium.

That should mess up I-95 in both directions as well as the Inner Harbor as 72,000 fans head to and from the game. Stadium parking lots open at 7 a.m. Pre-game ceremonies
begin at 11:26 a.m., and the kickoff is scheduled for 12:11 p.m.

The heaviest Interstate traffic is likely to be on I-95 at Exit 52 for Russell Street and at Exit 53 for I-395. That should start building about three hours before game time.

Police and traffic agencies offer these travel suggestions:
-- If your destination is north or south of Baltimore, consider I-895 or I-695 east. Both routes reconnect to I-95 north and south of the city.
-- If you're going to the game, plan to arrive early. Watch the overhead message boards for traffic information and directions to the stadium. Before you leave home, check traffic.md.gov. Information about street closures, traffic patterns and parking restrictions in Baltimore can be found at ci.baltimore.md.us under Government and Transportation. Stadium information is at baltimoreravens.com.
-- Information on the transit options -- MTA's Light Rail, Metro Subway
and local buses -- is available at mtamaryland.com.
