Anne Arundel County officials say a section of Race Road in Hanover will be closed for eight to 12 weeks for emergency repair, beginning Thursday morning at 10 a.m..

The county's Department of Public works will close the road between Hanover Road and Park Circle Drive, according to a press release. The area is near the Baltimore Washington Parkway and Route 100 near the Howard/Anne Arundel county line.

The repair work is needed to stabilize a slope along Race Road that has been weakened by erosion from the nearby Deep Run stream and recent heavy storms, officials said.

Local traffic will be allowed access; but all other traffic will be detoured using Hanover Road, Hi Tech Road and Coca-Cola Drive.
