I-395

Baltimore City
I-395
1.33 mi.; from I-95 Exit 53 north to W. Camden St., downtown Baltimore

Marked north-south.

A fitting entrance into downtown Baltimore, I-395 begins with the elevated interchange with I-95 over the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River. After entering I-395, there's only two choices-you can split off around the west of downtown on Martin Luther King Blvd. or head straight where I-395 quickly ends in front of Oriole Park (somewhat of a morgue nowadays; the Orioles haven't had a winning season since 1997.), but not before an at-grade intersection at Conway St. Howard St. continues ahead, sharing right-of-way with the Light Rail line north through the downtown area.

On the way out, it's a similar affair, the last chance to stay downtown is at Camden St. Most of the lanes lead to I-95 southbound, and only one for the somewhat narrow sky ramp for I-95 north. It can be a bit harrowing if one is fearful of heights, but provides a nice view nonetheless. Its main traffic these days, besides northbound commuters, seems to be happy visiting Yankee and Red Sox fans, which make up a majority of the crowd at the ballpark when their teams are in town. Meanwhile, Baltimore counts down the days till Ravens training camp....
