BALTIMORE — A water main break has shut down a busy stretch of Route 1 in the Perry Hall/Fullerton area.

Two out of the three lanes are closed to southbound traffic on Route 1 between Wholesale Club Road and Putty Hill Avenue.

The Department of Public Works said a contractor inadvertently damaged an existing 24-inch water main.

The water main will be temporarily shut down at 11 p.m. tonight for repairs. As a result, this will cause an overnight water service interruption in the 7900-8300 blocks of Belair Road.

The water main break was reported at 4:53 a.m. Tuesday, and DPW expects the road will stay closed until at least tomorrow (Thursday).

After service is repaired, DPW recommends residents and businesses flush their cold water lines for five minutes.
