UPDATE: Harford County Water & Sewer workers restored water service for affected customers by midnight on Tuesday night. The BGE contractor repaired the road, which reopened at 5:00 PM Wednesday. Thank you for your patience.
The BG&E Contractor performing work along Joppa Farm Road ruptured a 6" Harford County water main this afternoon near the intersection of Breslin Drive. Joppa Farm Road is now closed at the Breslin Road intersection until this work can be repaired. A detour route is in place directing all traffic around the area by using both Shore Drive and Towne Center Drive. The contractor is estimating return of water service to the area by about midnight to 1:00 AM and reconstruction of the road by tomorrow evening - pending any unforeseen difficulties with the repair work.
