Charles Street construction update: Lovegrove parking lot to be shut down

On Saturday, Feb.14, Baltimore City DOT will be shutting down the temporary parking lot on Lovegrove and 33rd Street. Parking will no longer be available at that location in order to turn over the site for the 3200 St. Paul Street development.

This week construction crews will begin removing concrete barrier walls on northbound Charles between between Art Museum Drive north to 33rd Street; thus allowing more and easier parking along the curb on N. Charles. The service lane between 31st Street north to 33rd Street will be opened for resident parking permit holders.

In addition, on Saturday, Feb. 14, city crews will be installing the final components for traffic controls at the Charles Street and University Parkway intersection. There will be flagging crews and traffic signal crews on site to install the final signal components and remove the temporary signals and poles at the intersection. The work will be performed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., and temporary lane restrictions and traffic delays should be expected during the intersection work.

As weather permits, in the coming weeks construction crews will perform temporary lane striping and will reopen southbound Charles Street between Art Museum Drive south to 29th Street.

Sidewalks and final paving will take place as temperatures moderate in March/April, and the project is expected to be completed in June.
