Mechanical Street Sweeping Parking Enforcement Will Begin Monday, August 15th

BALTIMORE, MD (August 5, 2022) – The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to remind residents that mechanical street sweeping parking enforcement will begin on Monday, August 15, 2022.

Mechanical street sweeping was resumed by the Baltimore City Department of Public Works in mid-July.  The restart of street sweeping services includes:

  • Central District Routes, which are swept weekly and generally extend from the City’s downtown area westward to Cooks Lane, northwest to Liberty Heights Avenue, northeast to Hillen Road, southeast to Haven Street, and southwest to Pratt Street.  These weekly routes have posted signage indicating the days and times that parking is restricted for street sweeping activities. 
  • Quadrant (Neighborhood) Street Sweeping occurs once a month (on Wednesdays) in the Northwest/Southeast and Northeast/Southwest areas of the city. Generally, Quadrant Sweeping areas do not have posted parking restrictions, but the City encourages residents to cooperate by moving their vehicles on designated street sweeping days.  Residents can find their scheduled Quadrant Street Sweeping days on the 2022 DPW calendar or by calling 311. 

A 30-day grace period began on July 13th to provide residents time to adjust to the street sweeping schedule before any parking citations are issued.  Residents and visitors are advised to follow the posted “No Parking Signs” which provide information about area parking restrictions on street sweeping days, Monday through Friday.  

The City’s street sweepers continue to service gateway routes into and out of the city, which are posted with peak-hour parking restriction signs.  Gateway parking restrictions on street sweeping days are already enforced, and will continue as we work together for a cleaner city.

Automated Speed Enforcement Citations to Begin Along the Jones Falls Expressway

Initial 90-day warning period is ending and motorists driving at excessive speeds will receive citations starting July 13th

BALTIMORE, MD (July 8, 2022) — The Baltimore City Department of Transportation (BCDOT) announced today that its automated speed enforcement system along the Jones Falls Expressway (JFX) will begin issuing citations to motorists driving at excessive speeds on Wednesday, July 13, 2022.

In an effort to decrease crashes and improve safety, automated speed enforcement cameras have been installed along the Jones Falls Expressway / I-83 within city limits.  Enforcement locations have been identified along the JFX where high incidents of speeding and vehicular crashes typically occur.  The cameras for the launch of this automated enforcement program are located along the northbound and southbound Jones Falls Expressway near the W. 41st Street bridge.

A 90-day warning period began in mid-April which alerted motorists of the new speed enforcement program and provided time for drivers to modify their behavior before any citations were issued.  During this time, motorists that exceeded the posted speed limit by 12 or more miles per hour received warnings by mail. 

Now that the warning period is ending, automated speed citations will be issued to violators starting on Wednesday, July 13, 2022.  The fine for an automated speed citation is $40, and since these are considered civil violations, no license points are assessed.  Automated speed enforcement along the JFX will be in effect 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

To alert motorists that automated speed enforcement is occurring, warning signs are posted along the expressway.  Digital speed sentry signs have also been installed so that drivers will receive feedback of their speeds in real time which encourages compliance with posted speed limits. 

According to Maryland State law, automated speed camera revenues will be used to cover the operating costs of the JFX camera system, and remaining funds must be allocated for expressway improvements.
