The State Highway Administration plans to close a portion of Old Taneytown Road (Md. 832) on Tuesday, Feb. 5, in order to replace a damaged drainage pipe.
The pipe is located under the road in the 1900 block of Old Taneytown Road. The road will be closed west of South Pleasant Valley Road beginning at 7 a.m. Thursday.
“We are optimistic the pipe replacement can be completed in one day,” states a news release sent by SHA spokesman Charlie Gischlar. “In the event that it cannot be completed in one day. Crews will install steel plates, so the road can be reopened overnight, then temporary reclosed on [Wednesday, Feb. 6] to complete the work.”
A detour route will be posted on signs via South Pleasant Valley Road, Md. 140 and Tyrone Road. The intersection of Old Taneytown and Tyrone roads will be manned with a flagger to help ingress and egress, according to the news release.
The pipe repair was originally scheduled for mid-January, but the work was postponed because of weather.
