A day after heavy rains dumped more than 10 inches in parts of northern Anne Arundel County, State Highway Administration crews were still addressing weather-related road problems on Wednesday, including a roadway section in Pasadena that had washed away. Highway officials said a section of Waterford Road between Catherine Avenue and Old Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard would be closed at least until Thursday evening as crews work to rebuild it. Officials said engineers who inspected a culvert in the area after the storm found that soil under bridge abutments had washed away, creating a washout area about 15 feet deep, 10 feet wide and 24 feet long.

" And so she and her friend, real estate agentr Carol Walters of Long & Foster's Columbia office, paid a visit to the Ritz-Carlton Residences at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Neunan recalled visiting the unit she bought at first sight.
