Tuesday's torrential rain - the most to fall in one day in more than 80 years - shut down portions of major roadways, stranded dozens of motorists, including some who had to be rescued, and caused dangerous flash floods throughout the region. More than 6 inches of rain fell steadily throughout the day, leading the Orioles to postpone their game against the Yankees, gallons of sewage to spill into the Jones Falls and fliers returning to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport to find vehicles stuck in flooded long-term parking lots.

The Maryland State Highway Administration has postponed the planned closure of Route 1 at Conowingo Dam until Monday, Nov. 14, the agency said Wednesday, citing weather concerns. The SHA had planned to close part of Route 1 at Conowingo Dam all day Thursday in order to resurface and repair highway damage at the intersection of Routes 1 and Route 222 (Rock Spring Road) caused by a fuel tanker truck accident and spill Oct. 26. The same work will now be done Monday because inclement weather was forecast for Thursday, SHA spokesman Charlie Gischlar said.

A three-foot sinkhole has shut down eastbound traffic on U.S. Route 50 in Annapolis Wednesday, and the road may remained closed into Thursday's morning rush, Maryland State police said. The sinkhole, which closed traffic during Wednesday's evening rush hour, was located across the right lane and second lane at MD Route 665, according to Cpl. David Johnson of the state police. "It has shut down eastbound 50 at 665, and it will probably be shut down all night," Johnson said. Engineers and the State Highway Administration are on the scene, Johnson said.

In 1992, Edgar G. Ulmer's 1945 Detour became the first example of sub-B moviemaking to win a place on the Library of Congress' Nation Film Registry; tomorrow it becomes the first of its kind to win a spot in the Charles Theatre's Saturday revival series. Ulmer, a gifted German craftsman, fled the Nazis in the early '30s. He created one big-studio horror classic (The Black Cat) and several fondly remembered Yiddish films (including The Light Ahead) before becoming an expert in no-budget genre movies on Hollywood's "Poverty Row."

The detour for Moores Mill Road in Bel Air between Broadway (Route 1) and the Southampton Circle went into place as scheduled on Wednesday. That stretch Moores Mill will be closed to through traffic for at least 10 months, as the county straightens, widens and repaves the road, a $2.1 million project. Bob Thomas, spokesman for county government, said the next couple of weeks will involve setting up by the contractor, after which actual construction work will begin. Comer Construction of Forest Hill is the contractor.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman's superb performance against the Mariners Wednesday afternoon earned him another start after the All-Star break. So why did the Orioles immediately option Tillman to Double-A Bowie following their 4-2 win over Seattle? The main reason is because the Orioles want Tillman to continue pitching throughout next week's break instead of taking 10 days off. So he will start for Bowie -- he last pitched for the Baysox in 2008 -- on Monday. He will then get in extra days of rest before being activated to pitch a week from Sunday -- the first day he's eligible to return -- against the Tigers.

THE PROBLEM -- A traffic detour around road construction in Overlea is too long, so motorists are instead using a neighborhood shortcut that is too narrow to handle the increased traffic. THE BACKSTORY -- Last month, a contractor for Baltimore County's Public Works Department began a $1.2 million project to fix curbs, gutters, storm drains and sidewalks along Kenwood Avenue between Leslie and Lyndale avenues in Overlea. The work takes place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. An official detour redirects Kenwood Avenue traffic onto a long loop that follows Lillian Holt Drive, Rossville Boulevard and Belair Road.

A water main break on North Avenue is forcing drivers to detour around a block of the main thoroughfare, a city Public Works spokesman said Tuesday evening. The break on North and Madison avenues is in a 6-inch main and mainly affects motorists, though about 45 homes and two businesses are without water, spokesman Kurt Kocher said. The break and repair work is blocking westbound traffic on North Avenue between Eutaw Place and Madison Avenue. The block will be shut down until repairs are completed, Kocher said.

As construction of a new interchange at Route 32 and Linden Church Road enters its final stages, motorists should get ready for some major changes to the flow of traffic on that stretch of road. Starting Friday, Oct. 11, the State Highway Administration will close the old alignment of West Linden Church Road and move traffic onto parts of the new interchange. Drivers will use ramps from Linden Church Road to Route 32 and a new bridge over Route 32 instead. This traffic realignment will last about three weeks, according to the SHA. During this time, construction crews will continue to resurface Route 32 and to build ramps from Route 32 onto the new Linden Church Road.

Tucked between Towson's York and Joppa roads, among four-square and hopscotch courts, Immaculate Conception School's parking lots teem with parents in station wagons and minivans awaiting their clamoring children Fridays after dismissal. In the late 1990s, a hulking motor home, with a 20-foot trailer holding four dirt bikes in tow, indiscreetly joined those ranks. And an adolescent Justin Boston, focused on the weekend ahead, would climb in and get to work. “We would stick out like a sore thumb,” Boston said.

Portions of Interstate 81 in Harrisburg, Pa., are expected to remain closed for several more days following a massive fuel tanker crash and explosion Thursday morning that damaged the highway and bridge, Pennsylvania transportation officials said. Northbound lanes at Exit 59 (Route 581) are blocked and the southbound interstate remains closed at Exit 70, the I-83 split. A tanker loaded with 7,500 gallons of diesel fuel flipped and exploded in a fireball that burned for 45 minutes and was so intense that it melted guardrails and the asphalt pavement, state police said.
