Transportation authority apologizes for I-395
Yesterday's posting reporting the problems that have afflicted inbound morning commuters coming off the Interstate 395 ramp and trying to merge into Conway Street brought a quick response from the Maryland Transportation Authority. It came in the form of an apology delivered by authority spokeswoman Kelly Melhem, who gave due credit to my colleague Larry Carson.
We apologize to I-395 travelers who experienced delays getting into the City due to snow at Conway Street. We understand Baltimore City removed the snow from this intersection last night.
The MDTA assisted Baltimore City with initial snow-removal efforts last week and will continue to assist with snow clean-up on City streets, particularly those near MDTA facilities and interchanges, to help ensure a smooth passage between
I-95/I-895 and local City streets. MDTA and City officials also met this morning to identify additional areas where MDTA crews could assist with snow clean-up, including portions of Key Highway, Caton Avenue, Eastern Avenue and Hanover Street.
Thanks to you and Mr. Carson for raising this issue. There’s always room to improve what we do and how we do it. We also thank your readers for their patience as clean-up from these historic storms continues.
