BALTIMORE — Maryland Transit Administration officials recently announced they intend to partially shut down Baltimore’s RailLink light rail system for 18 days beginning July 25 for what the agency describes as critical maintenance work.

From 4 a.m. on Tuesday, July 25, to midnight on Friday, Aug. 11, the agency will close its light rail system between the North Avenue and Camden Yards stations in both directions. Light rail service to Baltimore Penn Station will also be suspended so that maintenance crews can replace rail and conduct other infrastructure improvements.

During the track closure, the agency will offer local shuttle buses that will stop at each of the affected light rail station stops.

Baltimore’s light rail system spans approximately 30 miles with more than 30 station stops. The track alignment runs through downtown streets and rights-of-way from former Northern Central Railway and Baltimore & Annapolis Railroad tracks.
