Car fire slows Interstate 83 after Ravens game ends

Cars leaving Baltimore via the

Jones Falls Expressway

experienced significant delays early Monday morning as fire and police crews worked to clear a car fire.

The fire was in the northbound lanes of Interstate 83 near


Avenue. The lanes were back open as of about 2:30 a.m.

The southbound lanes near 28th Street were also temporarily shut down by police after the



victory Sunday night because of congestion downtown, but were reopened by 2 a.m.

Many motorists leaving the city after watching the Ravens defeat the

San Francisco 49ers

found themselves slowed to a crawl as traffic backed up.
