After more than a month of congestion on the Jones Falls Expressway, officials announced Saturday that emergency repair work on Baltimore's busiest road was finished ahead of schedule and all lanes were open in time for the unofficial start of summer. Lane closures had slowed commuter traffic to a crawl since mid-April as road crews worked to repair collapsed underground drainage pipes. The 50-year-old pipes created hazardous road conditions due to significant washout below the surface, officials said.

Businesses along the Jones Falls in the Woodberry neighborhood are used to the Jones Falls surging onto roads and parking lots after rainstorms, but Wednesday's flooding wasn't normal. At Nepenthe Homebrew in Meadow Mill, owners watched the floodwaters seep into their business, rising from a depth of a few inches to several feet, said Brian Arnold, who owns Nepenthe with his fiancee, Jill Antos. Outside, the water had surged as much as 3 feet higher than flood markers under the Jones Falls Expressway, he said.
