Water main break in Westminster disrupts service and causes 12-hour lane closures

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration reported a water main break early Tuesday afternoon at Leidy Road in Westminster, temporarily disrupting water service in the Route 140 area from Market Street eastward.

Two lanes — the right travel lane and turn lane — along MD 140 eastbound just east of Leidy Road were expected to remain closed for approximately 12 hours into Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning as crews work with the City of Westminster to repair the pipe.

There were signs, barrels and cones to alert motorists about the lane closure and work zone.

The SHA release asks drivers to stay alert, focus on driving and look for reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes. Stranded motorists can dial #77 on their mobile device for roadside assistance.
