LARGO, MD- The Prince George’s County Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) closed Brock Bridge Road at the Prince George’s/Anne Arundel County line and Contee Road at Mayfair Road in Laurel due to high water caused by the heavy rainfall.  DPW&T anticipates that Brock Bridge Road and Contee Road will reopen later today once the water recedes and the necessary safety evaluations have been conducted. 

In addition, DPW&T closed Governors Bridge Road on both the Prince George’s County and Anne Arundel County sides near the bridge due to high water.  It is anticipated that it will reopen in a couple of days, once the water recedes and the safety evaluations have been conducted.   

Motorists are advised to take alternate routes.  For more information, contact Carol Terry, DPW&T, 301-883-5600.
