Interstate 395 Baltimore, Maryland Map - AARoads

Interstate 395 constitutes a freeway spur with two prongs connecting I-95 over the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River with Downtown Baltimore. Named Cal Ripken Way, the eastern branch provides direct access into the central business district and the Inner Harbor Area. The western leg becomes Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard as it serves Oriole Park at Camden Yards (home of the Baltimore Orioles) and M&T Bank Stadium (home of the Baltimore Ravens) to the west of Downtown. Both spurs along for the freeway are signed as with Interstate 395 markers.
