A hole in the surface of North Point Road over Bread and Cheese Creek in Dundalk has closed the roadway for at least a week.
Baltimore County officials closed the road on Jan. 16 after the hole was discovered, according to David Fidler, a spokesman for the Baltimore County Department of Public Works.
Engineers from the Department of Public Works examined the bridge and roadway and then called in a contractor to make repairs, according to Fidler.
The work to repair the bridge's abutments and the road's travel surface is expected to take a week or more, Fidler said.
German Hill Road is just to the south of the closure.
