PROJECT PROFILE | BALTIMORE, MD Stadium Pedestrian Walkway Expansion with Trusted Stormwater Design Modular Wetlands® System Linear

M&T Bank Stadium, Home of the Baltimore Ravens - By Paparacy

Introduction The Camden Yards Sports Complex has recently finished a renovation of the Pedestrian Spine project, the walkway that connects Oriole Park at Camden Yards to M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens. According to Rachelina Bonacci, the public information officer for the Maryland Stadium Authority (via, “The 975 ft. Pedestrian Spine is being renovated to include enhanced security features, new hardscaping, a new impervious surface, new landscaping, and stormwater improvements.”1 Every weekend fans will be looking for a classic game day experience from convenient stadium access to tailgating party atmospheres, and a lot goes into retrofitting the existing parking lot to integrate stormwater management needs. A seemingly simple project can have demanding benchmarks to meet while still accommodating huge crowds and a developer’s land-use and long-term maintenance requirements.

Situation While expanding the walkway and retrofitting the existing parking lot to meet stormwater requirements, Carroll Engineering, Inc., the engineer of record, was mindful to accommodate growing stadium traffic, as the outcome rests on the project’s ability to maximize space while safely and conveniently welcoming thousands of vehicles and pedestrians. First, a stormwater system introduced into the site plan would have to meet local Environmental Site Design (ESD) requirements, but the conventional wisdom is that treatment systems designed to address vast areas of impervious land and heavy pollutant concentrations, would themselves, have to take up a large footprint. 5796 Armada Drive #250, Carlsbad, CA | 855.566.3938 | |
