DPW Bureau of Highways Re-Opens Sands Road

Publish Date: 06/27/2014

Annapolis, Maryland (June 27, 2014) – Sands Road in Harwood was re-opened today following the completion of emergency culvert repair work by the Department of Public Works.  The road was closed on May 23, 2014 after a collapsed culvert created a five foot wide and 15 foot deep hole. 


The Bureau of Highways managed the emergency culvert repair project.  Due to the extensive and complex scope of repair work, completion of the culvert repairs were expected to keep Sands Road closed until next month.     


Emergency repairs included:

  • Open excavation of roadway, 30' x 80' x 15'
  • Remove existing 72" pipe and fill material
  • Pour concrete footings to form headwall
  • Install four sections of pipe 
  • Bed pipe with gravel
  • Establish road base.
  • Apply base course asphalt
  • Apply top course asphalt
  • Upstream stabilization and roadway drainage tie-in
  • Downstream stabilization, step pool construction and stream tie-in
