We’re not here to tell you to avoid downtown Baltimore tomorrow. After all, the pair of events happening will make the city lively, and if you’re planning to go a few roads closed probably won’t keep you away. But just keep in mind that if you’re not running, moving by ship or flying real fast, there will be lots of road closures.
Fleet Week festivities and the Baltimore Running Festival are set to bring lots of congestion on Saturday, and at the same time close off big areas where everyone is trying to get.
For the Baltimore Marathon, which covers 26.2 miles, the spots to aim to drive are the following: north of 33rd Street, south of McComas Street, west of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and east of Highland Avenue. Parking restrictions will also be on numerous streets. The closures are set to last from around 9 a.m. through about 3 p.m. in many spots.
Of course, it’s also a great argument for taking public transit such as the light rail, or biking.
