BRIDGE INSPECTION: Following the heavy rains from last evening, Harford County DPW Structural Engineer, Matt Miller, was out first thing this morning inspecting the abutments on the Winters Run Road Bridge. The bridge was closed last evening because it was completely under water and could not be inspected until the water levels dropped sufficiently for the inspection to take place. Matt's inspection showed no undermining of the abutments and the bridge was then promptly reopened. When we have Road / Bridge closed signs installed during or after a storm, please obey the signs and find another way around to your destination. If the signs are posted, DPW is concerned for your safety, as well as the integrity of our infrastructure, and will make it a priority to reopen the road as soon as possible. Thank you.

RIDGE ROAD (500' south of Old Pylesville Road): Sometime Monday night a very large tree went down and took out some of the embankment and damaged this road. DPW is working on a solution, but it may take several months or more to design, schedule and construct. The road is narrowed down to one lane to keep traffic away from the slide and the ditchline will be paved to provide more space for vehicles to go past the barriers. Please drive carefully and courteously when using the road and yield the right of way to opposing traffic. Thank you.

EDGEWOOD ROAD - The Harford County Highways Bridge Crew took advantage of the road being closed for the culvert work identified in yesterday's post, to remove storm debris from the four-cell box culvert. Removal of the debris is very important in that it allows the opening to be reestablished, which will then pass larger flows of water without flooding.
