Welcome to Transportation


The Baltimore City Department of Transportation began implementing signal timing adjustments approximately 6 weeks ago in the downtown area.  The new timing patterns reduced congestion in certain areas but increased congestion in other parts downtown. The new timing plans have been designed to accommodate Baltimore’s varying travel demands by time-of-day, including the morning, midday and evening rush hours. 

We are working with “all hands on deck” to improve traffic conditions in the downtown area.  Our traffic signal technicians will be making robust timing adjustments to the downtown network to ensure that traffic flow improves.  We also have a full deployment of Traffic Enforcement Officers assisting with the flow of traffic at critical intersections during peak hour travel times, and traffic investigators evaluating traffic conditions.  As we implement the signal timing changes, we encourage citizens to plan ahead by allowing additional travel time.  We anticipate that traffic patterns will improve within the next several days.

The Baltimore City Towing Board is holding a Telephone Conference call on Monday,  July 16, 2018 @ 10:00 AM.  The phone number to call in is 1-712-775-7031 Access Code # 752-080.  The purpose of this meeting will be to approve or disapprove  Trespass Tow drivers.
