Md. 355 near Urbana is expected to be closed through the weekend due to flooding damage Thursday.
Flooding at Bennett Creek damaged the road, guardrail and embankment and forced the closure of the road between Big Woods Road/Dr. Perry Road and the campus of Urbana High School at 3471 Campus Drive, according to a news release from the State Highway Administration.
The SHA expects the repairs to continue through the weekend and the road to reopen to traffic on Monday.
