FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

BALTIMORE, MD. (Sunday, December 18, 2022) - Mayor Brandon M. Scott and the Baltimore City Department of Transportation (BCDOT) would like to advise the public that a portion of North Avenue will soon be reopening as repairs to an underground utility line are completed.

North Avenue roadway will partially reopen to through traffic between Greenmount Avenue and Homewood Avenue by 5:00 a.m. tomorrow, Monday, December 19, 2022. Be advised that once the roadway is partially reopened to traffic, the dedicated westbound bus/bike lane between Homewood Ave and Boone Street will remain closed for continued utility and roadway restoration work. Homewood Avenue between North Avenue and East 20th Street will also remain closed until all work is complete.

This past July, the 700 block of E. North Avenue was closed to traffic because of a sinkhole in the sidewalk. Extensive repairs had to be made to the underground utilities in this area, including the construction of a new concrete storm drain.

The City of Baltimore and BCDOT would like to thank residents and commuters for their patience during the closure of North Avenue while repairs were completed.
