In June 2017, the Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA) and Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the MDOT MTA / MARC Camden Station Replacement project located on the east side of the Warehouse. The project is fully funded by MDOT MTA, the MSA will be reimbursed for project management costs as detailed in the MOA.
The MDOT MTA/MARC Camden Station Replacement project moved forward according to schedule, with contracts for design services (awarded to AECOM Technical Services) and pre-construction management services (awarded to Barton Malow), both approved by the MSA's Board of Directors. Additionally, Barton Malow’s contract was approved by the Board of Public Works.
In September 2019, the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration joined with MSA to open the new Camden Station in downtown Baltimore. The station provides direct service to MARC Train and Light RailLink, and its design complements the adjacent historic and iconic CYSC. The $7.2 million Camden Station includes an expanded seated waiting area, restrooms and new ticket vending machines, as well as service and informational displays. Bike racks, located conveniently outside the station, provide a multi-modal experience for passengers.
Camden Station is designed with environmentally friendly features such as energy-efficient lighting and plumbing fixtures and coated glass that will reduce energy consumption. MDOT MTA is pursuing LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, which would designate Camden Station as a “green” facility.
The project, completed on-time and on-budget, was fully funded by MDOT MTA, with MSA reimbursed for its construction project management.
