The Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works says a portion of Piney Orchard Parkway in Odenton was closed on Wednesday morning in both directions from Waugh Chapel Road to Strawberry Lake Way as crews restore the roadway damaged by a water main break this morning.

The break was reported at 5 a.m. and repaired by Bureau of Utilities crews, but badly damaged approximately 150 feet of Piney Orchard Parkway.  

Officials said efforts to restore the damaged section of Piney Orchard Parkway to safe driving standards were under way Wednesday morning and were expected to be completed by the end of the day.
