Central Avenue Rehabilitation Project
The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists that the rehabilitation of Central Avenue will soon begin. The rehabilitation of Central Avenue is a two-phase project that includes both storm drain and roadway reconstruction from Madison Street to Baltimore Street.
During construction, Central Avenue will remain open to motorists, but traffic shifts and lane closures will be implemented throughout the duration of the project. Starting at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 06, 2012, a left lane traffic shift will be implemented along both northbound and southbound Central Avenue at the intersection of Fayette Street.
The lane closures and traffic shifts will be modified during construction and parking will be maintained along one side of the roadway. Variable message signs have been placed in the area to alert motorists of the project.
The reconstruction of Central Avenue is expected to be complete in the summer of 2017. Commuters should be on the watch for changing traffic patterns while traveling in this vicinity and may experience delays.
