Annapolis, Maryland (August 14, 2014) – The Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works (DPW) Bureau of Highways (BOH) has completed preliminary assessments of the road segments and underground utilities overwhelmed by Tuesday’s extraordinary rainfall.  Work to restore and repair washed out road segments, culvert pipes and underground utillity lines has begun and is estimated to cost at least $3 million.   
 
 
Flooding and excess rainfall also caused sanitary sewer overflows at the Cox Creek Water Reclamation Facility and Cinder Cover Sewer Pumping Station.
 
 
“The intensity of this storm was a knockout blow to parts of our systems,” said DPW Director Christopher Phipps.  “The amount of rainfall on Tuesday equated to at least a 200 year storm event in parts of the County.  Because of the complex and extensive nature of this work, some road segments may be closed for two to three weeks.”
 
 
One washed out section of Marley Neck Road near Marcy Drive will be closed for an extended period of time.  The rainfall and flooding damage exposed numerous underground utilities that will need to be restored including a 12-inch water main, an 8-inch gravity sewer main, a 32-inch sewer force main and several other gas and electric utiliites.  
 
Most active road closures are due to flooding and will be reopened to traffic as soon as possible.
