View Comments

QUEENSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Maryland highway official says Route 50 has reopened near Queenstown after being closed in both directions for more than 24 hours because of a downed power line.

State Highway Administration spokesman David Buck says the highway was closed about 4 p.m. Saturday just east of the split with Route 301 and reopened about 4:15 p.m. on Sunday. The spokesman said he didn’t know if the power line was brought down by a winter storm that passed through the area on Saturday.
