Traffic on Md. 80 near Md. 75 is open in both directions, but section flagging is in effect until at least Wednesday, according to Maryland’s State Highway Administration.
SHA spokeswoman Shantee Felix said motorists can travel in both directions, but section flagging has been in effect in both directions since roughly 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Felix added that the right-hand lane onto Md. 80 remains closed, as workers continue to repair electric and utility lines that were damaged because of a storm Sunday night.
They were expected to continue work until at least midday Wednesday, Felix added.
Multiple power lines were standing at roughly 45-degree angles Monday, and some were partially snapped and had collapsed into the road or a nearby cornfield as a result of the storm.
Crews worked into the night Monday and came back Tuesday morning to continue work to get the busy intersection near Urbana reopened.
