Traffic partially reopened after water main break closes Md. 355

WASHINGTON — An early morning water main break in Gaithersburg, Maryland, shut down Maryland Route 355 southbound between High Point Drive and Professional Drive as 100 feet of water shot into the air.

Md. 355 northbound on Game Preserve Road was also temporarily blocked, but reopened around 5:30 a.m. Monday. As of 10 a.m., one southbound lane had reopened amid repairs, according to the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission.

Several businesses near Game Reserve Road were also without water, the commission said. By early afternoon, service to all Gaithersburg customers had been restored.

Both lanes had been shut down around 3:55 a.m.
