BRANDYWINE, Md. (WJLA) – Prince George's County police have closed a bridge in Brandywine until further notice.
Police said the bridge, which is located on South Springfield Road, was washed away by all of the rain on Tuesday.
An estimate on when the bridge and road would reopen to traffic was not available.
Several parts of the D.C. metropolitan region are still recovering from Tuesday’s storms which brought record rainfall to sections of Maryland, D.C. and Virginia.
Anne Arundel County in Green Haven, Maryland received more than 10 inches of rain while Baltimore-Washington International Airport saw a record six inches of rain, the highest recorded in a 24-hour period for that area. Comparatively, Dulles International Airport and Reagan National Airport received 1.13 and 1.16 inches of rain, respectively.
The rain triggered Flash Flood Warnings and closed several low-lying roads in Prince George’s County in Maryland and Fairfax County in Virginia due to high-standing water.
By Wednesday, some roads remained closed with parts of Maryland still experiencing leftover flooding.
