River Road in Bethesda, which flooded Dec. 23 after an underground water main burst, reopened to traffic at 3 a.m. yesterday. The 66-inch-diameter pipe ruptured during morning rush hour, submerging the street and stranding commuters, some of whom had to be plucked from their vehicles by rescuers in helicopters. The unusual scene was carried live on CNN. Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission contractors worked nearly around the clock to repair the damage, replacing five 16-foot sections of pipe that weighed 14 tons each, officials said.

An investigation into how a large water main that burst and flooded River Road in Montgomery County last year was allowed to be installed improperly has found that inspection records for the pipe might have been thrown away inadvertently, leaving the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission unable to determine whether other pipes could have similar problems, WSSC officials said Thursday. Officials said three months of searching have failed to turn up daily inspection reports that would have revealed what the utility's inspectors witnessed as the 66-inch concrete pipe was laid in the ground in 1965, or at least what they recorded.

At first glance, the western Howard County intersection of Route 32 and River Road looks much like any other along the busy corridor heading toward the nearby Carroll County line. Cars and trucks zoom in both directions, most not heeding the 50-mph speed limit, many not adhering to signs advising headlights for better visibility and nearly every one of them ignoring cars trying to inch into traffic. To those who live in the Howard Lodge neighborhood tucked inside that intersection, the confluence of high-speed driving and a quick turn into traffic was, quite literally and tragically, an accident waiting to happen.
