Game-Plan Ravens Gameday Travel

Posted Nov 6, 2013

Sunday’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium is the first since there have been road and lane closures near the stadium. Access to and from the stadium has been impacted.

Ravens fans are advised to review the following changes and plan accordingly.

“Until our fans find new routes and make adjustments to these closures, those who drive to the stadium area should plan on arriving a little earlier and note that it will likely take longer to leave the stadium area after games,” said Roy Sommerhof, the Ravens’ vice president of stadium operations.

It is recommended that ticket holders go to www.baltimoreravens.com/streetclosures for suggestions on the best ways to reach and depart the M&T Bank Stadium area.

Here are the streets affected:

  • A block of Warner Street, located directly south of the stadium, has been permanently closed due to the new casino being built in the area. This closure extends between Worcester Street and Bayard Street. Fans heading north on Russell Street, who would normally turn right on either of these streets, can now turn right on Worcester Street, which connects to Warner Street.
  • To prevent wrong turns on gameday, both Haines Street and Bayard Street will be blocked at Russell Street to encourage fans to turn right on Worcester Street. (Local traffic to this area, including to the Greyhound Bus Station, will be allowed past the barricades.)
  • Fans should note that one lane in each direction on Russell Street between Bush Street (south of Camden Yards) and M&T Bank Stadium will be closed for the remainder of the season. These closures are expected to create delays after games when fans are traveling at the same time.
  • For fans parking in Lots A, B and C who come from the I-95 corridor, it is recommended to utilize Exit 53 to I-395 and take the Russell Street exit in order to avoid the construction zone. 

“Historically, traffic to our home games is staggered,” Sommerhof explained. “Some fans come early to tailgate. Others like to come into M&T when the gates open, and some like to arrive as close to kickoff as possible. We anticipate that traffic will be more impacted leaving our games because everyone is traveling at the same time.”

The City of Baltimore is making the following adjustments to help efficiently move post-game traffic:

  • The ramp from southbound Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard to southbound Russell Street will be closed after games. Motorists on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard will have to continue south to I-395 to access I-95.
  • Fans who park in lots along Hamburg Street west of Russell Street will be directed to exit westbound (away from Russell Street). Signs will direct motorists to Washington Boulevard South for access to I-95 South, or Washington Boulevard North for access to I-95 North/South via Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard/I-395.
  • Fans who park in lots that exit to Lee Street will be required to turn right onto northbound Russell Street. Signs will then direct those wanting to go south to make rights on either Camden Street or Pratt Street and then proceed to I-395 South.

“We also suggest fans consider using the Light Rail and our Ravens Ride buses,” Sommerhof added.

Those schedules can be found on www.baltimoreravens.com/streetclosures.
