MARC Upgrades: Feds Give $6 Million Towards Oriole Park @ Camden Yards Station Upgrade

The MARC station that has been in place at Orioles Park at Camden Yards for 30 years was originally a “temporary structure” that has stood the test of time. The state of Maryland has not had the funds during the station’s lifetime to build a full-size, permanent station.

That has now changed due to a federal grant that is giving $6 million of the required $7.2 million needed for redevelopment. The Maryland Transit Authority (MTA) will be putting up the other $1.2 million.  The goal is to create a sizable permanent station in a brick design that will fit in well with the Warehouse at Camden Yards and the historic Camden Station. The MTA and Stadium Authority have a vested interest in doing the design in a manner that is complementary – the Warehouse and Camden Station are historic properties and are the Stadium Authority’s “flagship campus.”

The MARC Camden Line is not just relevant if you’re headed out to the ballgame. It’s a key route for commuters from Baltimore to DC and vice versa, as well as a large number of University of Maryland Medical Center workers traveling between Baltimore and College Park.
