Lombard Street paving work scheduled
Delays are expected on Lombard Street over the next two weeks as the city launches a round of overnight paving work starting Monday.
Lane closings are expected to affect traffic on Lombard between Calvert and Greene streets for two weeks starting at 7 p.m. and continuing until 5 a.m.
Although the city plans to keep at least two lanes of downtown's main westbound artery open, officials are urging motorists to use alternate routes, including Orleans Street for crosstown travel. For southbound drivers making the connection between Interstate 83 and Interstate 95, the department recommends taking the North Avenue exit to Mount Royal Avenue before bearing right to Cathedral Street and turning onto Martin Luther King Boulevard.
