BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Part of Hollins Ferry Road in Baltimore will be closed next week temporarily so the Baltimore Department of Transportation can work on area railroad crossings, department officials said.

Starting at about 7 a.m. Monday, the road between Severn and South Paca streets will be closed with detours in effect, weather permitting. Local access will be allowed for area businesses and residents.
