Residents Trapped, Traffic Diverted After Dump Truck Damages Power Lines On Route 1

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Route 1 in the Elkridge area is a mess Tuesday morning after a dump truck damaged power lines in the area.

Northbound traffic on Route 1 is being diverted to Route 100 eastbound and Route 1 southbound traffic must turn around via Troy Hill Drive.

Residents living in the neighborhood off Amberton Drive cannot leave or return to their neighborhood.

BGE and SHA are on-scene in addition to police, working to make the area safe for drivers.

Officials say the road won’t reopen until this afternoon.
