Sewer Pipe Replacement Work on Main Street Continues into Next Week

The Calvert County Department of Public Works reports Main Street in Prince Frederick will remain closed for at least another week while crews continue to replace a 43-year-old sewer main pipe that failed Jan. 19. Main Street businesses are open for customers.

The road closure is at the Church Street intersection. Motorists travelling northbound on Main Street can turn around utilizing the circular driveway behind 131 Main Street or at the County Services Plaza. Those travelling eastbound on Church Street can take a left-hand only turn onto Main Street. Motorists should avoid the construction area, but if travel is necessary, please use caution.

"The construction is challenging because crews are replacing a 50-foot-long, 12-inch pipe located 20 feet below ground under a working water main pipe," said Department of Public Works Director Rai Sharma. "Crews are doing a great job at working safely and meticulously so as to not further impact water and sewer customers or local businesses."
