County announces two road closings


October 28, 2007

Harford County has announced two road closings this week.

Tomorrow, Madonna Road between Carea Road and Jerrys Road is expected to close for about a month to allow repairs to a culvert.

On Thursday, Asbury Road between Calvary Road and Edwards Lane will be closed to traffic for about 120 days for a culvert replacement.

Motorists who normally travel these routes should make other arrangements during the closures.
