UNDATED- Maryland State Highway Administration officials say crews continue to respond to the severe weather, remove debris and detour around roads closed for safety due to high water.

Heavy storms dropped several inches of rainfall across the state- including the Eastern Shore- over the last two days. Officials are reminding  all drivers, cyclists and pedestrians to avoid traveling through flooded areas.  Access to some state routes is now blocked due to high water, and all travelers should use extra caution.

Drivers are asked to remain alert for highway and utility crews, especially when approaching interchange ramps and intersections.  Anyone who chooses to drive is reminded to treat intersections without power to the signal system as a four-way stop.   A list of current road incidents and closures is available on the CHART website.

Customers are also asked to report problem locations along state-maintained routes.  A list of SHA maintenance shops statewide is available at roads.maryland.gov.  Travelers may dial 1-855-GO-MD511 or 1-855-466-3511 or log onto www.MD511.org for weather-related lane closure information.
