River Road Reopens

River Road, an important link between Montgomery County and the western side of the District, is scheduled to reopen at 3 a.m. tonight. It had been closed since Dec. 23, when a 66-inch water main broke and inundated the roadway between Potomac village and the Capital Beltway.

WSSC's contractor repaired the water main and the damaged sections of River Road. An average of 19,800 drivers travel along River Road near Bradley Boulevard each day, the State Highway Administration said.

Gov. Martin O'Malley issued a statement saying: "Thanks to a lot of hard work through the holidays and a great partnership between all levels of local and state government, I am proud to say we were able to get the repairs done in a week and open in time for the New Year."

Here's a map of the area.

The article says "River Road, an important link ... is scheduled to reopen at 3 a.m. tonight."

I have a kind of editing comment. There is no time stamp on the column. If it is not normal to time-stamp the article, then maybe the text could state a specific date. January 1??

Big thanks to those who worked out in the cold to fix the pipe and road. Happy New Year!
