Baltimore Grand Prix - What You Should Know
Baltimore City will be hosting the Inaugural 2011 Grand Prix during Labor Day weekend (September 2-4, 2011). The City is expecting over 50,000 visitors to the area on Labor Day weekend for the race and the associated activities.
On Friday, September 2nd, and Saturday, September 3rd, all outpatient clinic appointments at the Baltimore VA Medical Center have been cancelled (except for the Methadone Clinic). This will help to eliminate any confusion that our Veteran patients and their family members might experience due to some of the temporary detours and road closures in Baltimore City associated with the Grand Prix. All other patient care and administrative areas throughout the Baltimore VA Medical Center will be operating as usual.
For a listing of road closures leading up to and during the Grand Prix, or for more information about the race, please visit one of the following two websites: baltimoregrandprix.com/ and gptraffic.com/.
As for public transportation, MTA Metro subway service will not be affected before or during the Grand Prix. MTA local bus diversions will begin on Wednesday, August 31st, at 7:30 p.m. Light Rail service modifications will begin on Thursday, September 1st. For detailed information about MTA bus diversions or Light Rail modifications before and during the Grand Prix, please call (410) 539-5000 or visit mta.maryland.gov.
Thank you for your cooperation as Baltimore City prepares to host the Inaugural 2011 Grand Prix.
