Roddy Rd Near Covered Bridge Closed

A portal near  the span was damaged by a truck on Monday.


Thurmont, Md  (KM)   Roddy Road near the historic covered bridge north of   Thurmont has  been closed. The Frederick County Office of Highway Operations says a truck  struck a warning portal  south  of the bridge on Monday afternoon.

The span itself was not damaged as the portal stopped the vehicle from crossing.

Officials say repairs are expected to be completed before the end of the week.

Motorists who normally travel  that area are urged to  find an alternate route. The Division of Fire and Rescue Services  and the school system have been notified.
