Kenilworth Avenue reopening today

Street closed to through traffic after March water main break

April 08, 2004|By Staff

Kenilworth Avenue in Towson was set to reopen late this afternoon, after being closed to through traffic since a 48-inch water main break left a gaping sinkhole on March 28.

Baltimore County Public Works Department employees began paving the road earlier today, said the agency's David Fidler, but the road will not reopen until after they have finished and the cement has hardened.

The repair is a temporary patch, he said. Permanent repairs will be made in a few weeks after the road has settled.

"It'll depend on how it settles," said Fidler, adding that employees will survey the road later to schedule repairs.

Work on the pipes were completed Sunday, he said. Crews finished sanitizing the water main on Tuesday.
