Traffic Modifications for the Baltimore Orioles Opening Day Home Game

Home opening game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards will be held on Thursday, March 28th

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists of the traffic and parking modifications that will be implemented for opening day at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.  The Baltimore Orioles will play their home opening game against the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday, March 28, 2024 starting at 3:05 p.m. 

Motorists should be advised that all parking restrictions and residential permit parking regulations will be strictly enforced in the vicinity of the stadium.  Patrons who do not have a parking permit for any of the stadium lots are strongly encouraged to use public transportation.  Increased traffic delays should be expected due to the Key Bridge closure.  With a variety of transit options including the Metro Subway, Light Rail, Local Bus, the Charm City Circulator, and Harbor Connector, fans can easily use mass transit from numerous locations in and around Baltimore. Additional fleet vehicles have been added to the Charm City Circulator, one additional bus to both the Banner and Orange Routes to expand transportation resources considering the Key Bridge closure.

Baseball fans that drive to the game should utilize commercial parking facilities north of the stadium and avoid parking in area neighborhoods.  Transportation Enforcement Officers will enforce all posted parking restrictions and residential permit parking regulations in the vicinity of the stadium.  Vehicles parked in violation will be ticketed and towed.  Patrons with questions concerning the location of their vehicles should call 311. 

In preparation for the game, the following streets and lanes will be closed on Thursday, March 28, 2024: 

  • Emory Street from Dover to Portland Streets (closed 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)
  • Portland Street from Emory to Greene Streets (closed 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.)

Transportation Enforcement Officers will be stationed at key intersections to assist with the movement of traffic in the downtown area.  Motorists traveling in this vicinity should be on the watch for pedestrians, especially when approaching designated crosswalks.
