Roads agency closes section of Route 853

A section of Route 853 between Angell Road and Brown Road north of Taneytown was permanently closed Monday, the State Highway Administration said.

During a routine bridge inspection, SHA engineers found that a 5-foot box culvert carrying the road over a small stream had deteriorated.

The state has no plans to reopen Route 853 and replace the culvert because the road is not used often and motorists have access to parallel Route 194, Francis Scott Key Highway, SHA officials said.
