As construction progresses downtown, the construction zone is also becoming more congested. The safety of visitors to downtown, as well as the construction workers, is our priority during construction. As such, the City of Cumberland Engineering Department would like to notify the public that the following streets will be closed to vehicular traffic beginning on Monday, February 26th:

North Centre Street, between Dexter Place and Frederick Street

North Liberty Street, between Frederick and Pershing Streets

Baltimore Street, between Mechanic and George Streets

Emergency vehicle access will be maintained. Pedestrian access to all buildings downtown will also be maintained.

Visitors to downtown are encouraged to utilize the Center City Parking Garage on George Street, which is offering 2 hours of free parking.  This closure is anticipated to remain in effect until April 1st. Additional information will be released in the event the closure duration is extended or shortened.

Thank you for your cooperation during this time. Please use caution in the area and follow all traffic control devices that will be in place. If there are any questions, please contact the City of Cumberland Engineering Department, 301-759-6600.
