Sinkhole leads to detour along Annapolis area roads

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Emergency work to repair a collapsed culvert will close Sands Road in Harwood between Branch View Court and Chinquapin Crest Road for an estimated six weeks.

 The culvert collapsed Thursday evening causing a hole in Sands Road that is approximately 5 feet in diameter and 15 feet deep.  

"There is no quick fix solution to making this road as safe as possible for those that use it every day," said Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works Director Christopher Phipps in a statement.  "The extensive scope of work over the next six weeks will ensure that we are not back here three years from now."  

Road closure and detour signs can be found on the DPW website .
