Although for the most part major damage was avoided throughout Carroll County, Hurricane Irene left her mark in downing power lines and trees.
The following is a list of road closures as of noon. Carroll County Emergency Management Coordinator Jim Weed cautions that this list is fluid, meaning it is constantly changing as debris are cleared and roads are made passable again.
Weed said they are clearning the roads as quickly as possible. He said that in many instances, the county is waiting for BGE to clear downed lines before county crews can actually clear the roadway.
The Maryland State Police have issued a statement warning motorists to use caution when driving through intersections with traffic signals as many of the signals are not working.Houcksville Road between Willow and Highfield tree across road Oakland Mills Rd at Arthur Ave trees across road with wire Hoover Mill Rd at Ebvale Rd tree across road 1027 Brodbeck Rd tree across road Mineral Hill Rd at Wendy Rd tree across road London Bridge Rd at Joy Road trees and wires across road Dutrow Rd at Carrollton trees across road Warehime Rd, 100 ft off Maple Grove Rd trees across road 2650 Hoffman Mill Rd trees across road area of 212 John Hyde Rd trees and wires across road Springdale Rd at Young Rd trees and wires acros road Morgan Station Rd, 1/4 mile north of RXR tracks trees across road Bowersox Rd between Stone Chapel and Marston Rd trees across road Jasontown Rd at John Hyde trees across road Kent Terrace at Woodside Dr tree across road 500 Lucabaugh Mill Rd tree acros road 729 Oklahoma Rd trees on wire 7023 Runkles Rd Pole and wires Albert Rill Rd at Old Fort Schoolhouse Rd treees Rohrabugh Rd trees Wesley Rd and Patapsco Rd trees and wires across road 2000 Sherlock Holmes trees Bruce Court trees Bachman Rd trees 8000 Henryton Rd at Hospital wires across road 2195 Frizzelburg Rd wires across road Johnsville Rd off Middleburg large trees and wires 2121 Gillis Falls Rd wires across road Nicodemus Rd off MD 27 tree across road Forest Stream Club Rd at Keysville Rd broken pole in road, wires on road Carrollton Rd at Lees Mill Rd tree hanging in wires 4500 Roop Rd trees in road Poole Rd at MD 97 trees in road Lake Dr at Trail Ct trees in road Roller Road, dirt part 3 trees in road 926 Silver Run Valley Rd telephone wires/pole leaning 2728 Snydersburg Rd treees and wire across road 3400 Carrollton Rd trees across road Bark Hill Rd at Middleburg Rd tree in road Gross Mill Rd at Dave Rill Rd tree in road
