Water to be shut off for I-95 bridge project
Residents in parts of northeastern Baltimore County will have their water shut off temporarily from 9 p.m. Sunday through 6 a.m. Monday to accommodate construction on the Interstate 95 bridge over Joppa Road, city public works officials said.
The work affects the area in the vicinity of I-95 and Pulaski Highway, bounded by Gunpowder Falls State Park on the north and east, Perry Hall Farms on the west and Joppa Road on the south.
Crews from the city will be on hand during the shut-off to assist firefighters with any emergency. The shut-off is necessary because the water line is suspended from the bridge, said city Public Works Director George L. Winfield.
Residents are advised to fill containers with enough water to serve their needs before the shut-off.
