The state’s $7 million-plus overhaul of the Camden MARC station begins today, with plans to give it a design that’s more complementary to Oriole Park at Camden Yards than the present space frame-supported roof at the stop, as well as the historic Camden Station building that until recently housed the Sports Legends and Geppi’s museums.

While MARC service actually won’t be interrupted at the mostly outdoor stop, the Maryland Transit Administration will be shutting down the Light Rail station that thousands of passengers use to get to and from games during baseball season. Trains will thus go straight from Hamburg to the Convention Center stop, and vice-versa.
