Anne Arundel road closure

Anne Arundel road closure

Harwood road @ Defense Hwy (rte 450) is blocked off.  It passable now, but looks like they are about to tear up the road.
The Crofton to Galesville loop and the Crofton to Chesapeake beach ride use this road.

Whoa, thanks for the info about Harwood @ 450. Any reason to think the closure will last a whole month? The next Crofton to Chesapeake Beach ride is in late April.

Re: Anne Arundel road closure

Mike,

You've got the wrong road name.  Harwood Road is NOT closed.  (FYI, Harwood Road is about 7 miles south of Rt. 450 (Defense Hwy.) and does not intersect it.)

The road that is closed is Rutland Road just south of Rt. 450, between Crownsville and Davidsonville.  The closed section of road extends from Rt. 450 to approximately Lavall Dr.

There is a barricade across Rutland Road to prevent access.  The southbound lane has a large steel plate over it, apparently to cover a hole in the road.  There is a backhoe and several lengths of corrigated steel culvert pipe sitting nearby.  It appears that the culvert pipe that crosses underneath the road is being replaced.  Saturday (3/20/2010) it was possible to lift a bike over the barricade, walk past the steel plate, and continue beyond the construction site.  However it appears that further work will occur shortly.

I did not see this project listed on the Anne Arundel County road construction web page (http://www.aacounty.org/DPW/Highways/ro … ction.cfm), which is updated weekly.

Suggested detour (if attempting to head south on Rutland Rd.) is to take Rt. 450 West about 3 miles, turn left on Rt. 424 for 0.2 mile, then turn left on Bell Branch Rd. and follow 2.1 miles back to Rutland Rd.  (Reverse this detour if heading north on Rutland Rd.)

As of mid-May, Anne Arundel County Dept of Public Works officials expected Rutland Road to be re-opened by the first week in July.

Rutland Road is reopened; nice and smooth, too.
