Pedestrian takeover prompts closure of portion of Charles Street

Portions of Charles Street will be closed Saturday for the Charles Street Promenade pedestrian takeover, the Baltimore City Department of Transportation announced Friday. Our partners at the Baltimore Business Journal reported last week that the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore has arranged for the closure of Charles Street between Saratoga Street and North Avenue on Saturday to help restaurants and shops attract some much-needed foot traffic.
