Department of Transportation Urges Citizens to Prepare for Inclement Weather
Mixed precipitation/snow expected through Wednesday may cause hazardous driving conditions
The Baltimore City Department of Transportation Director Michelle Pourciau would like to encourage citizens to plan ahead for inclement weather expected in the Baltimore region. Mixed precipitation along with periods of snow is expected throughout the day on Wednesday, which will affect driving conditions and cause delays.
The Baltimore City Snow Team is prepared for the storm and will closely monitor weather and roadway conditions. Snow crews will activate at 4:00 p.m. today to treat city streets and address icy conditions throughout this event.
Citizens are encouraged to plan ahead and be prepared for the inclement weather, which may cause hazardous driving conditions. Roadways could become slick, especially on bridges, ramps and overpasses. Motorists are strongly advised to allow extra travel time and proceed with extreme caution, as roadway conditions can change rapidly throughout the storm. Citizens should also allow extra following distance and reduce travel speeds in case of slippery conditions.
“As we start the spring season with an accumulating snow event, we urge citizens to plan ahead and be prepared for the storm,” said Director Michelle Pourciau. “Snow crews will be treating city streets and we advise motorists not to pass working plow vehicles for everyone’s safety.”
For updated weather forecasts, traffic conditions and school delays/closing information, citizens should tune into local media stations. Be sure to follow DOT on Facebook at Baltimore City Department of Transportation and Twitter @BmorecityDOT for additional updates.

South Baltimore Gateway Parking Study
The South Baltimore Gateway Parking Study is being conducted for the South Baltimore Peninsula focused on Otterbein, Federal Hill, Riverside, South Baltimore Neighborhood and Sharp-Leadenhall, addressing current needs and impacts of future development. The Parking Authority of Baltimore City (PABC) directed the study, as they serve the City of Baltimore, its residents, businesses and visitors by managing parking assets of the City and developing and implementing parking and parking-related transportation solutions. The goals of the study are to provide a clear understanding of the current parking situation in the study area neighborhoods, to have as clear an understanding as possible of the future parking situation in those communities, and to provide recommendations on strategies for positively affecting the current and future parking situation in the study area.
Parking Study Boundaries: The parking study includes the area within the following boundaries: • Northern boundary: W. Conway Street • Southern boundary: CSX Rail • Eastern boundary: Inner Harbor from W. Conway Street to Lawrence Street, then Key Highway • Western boundary: Route 395 from W. Conway Street to Stockholm Street, then CSX Rail. The study area excludes the Spring Garden Station of BGE because it has no pedestrian access from South Baltimore across the CSX freight rail line. The study also includes the area between the southern end of the Sharp-Leadenhall neighborhood and the rail line to capture the future Stadium Square development. Click Here to Submit A Comment.
