The I-270 Sinkhole Has Been Repaired; All Travel Lanes Now Open

by MCS Staff

The Maryland State Highway Administration has announced that all travel lanes are now open on southbound I-270, following over two weeks of repairs for a sinkhole that was caused by a failed corrugated drainage pipe in the right lane of I-270 southbound, prior to Exit 9 (I-370).

Per MDSHA last week: “Major pipe failure looked small on surface of SB I-270, but it was only the tip of the iceberg. Damage underneath was not visible to drivers but is 20 ft wide, 15 ft long & 12 ft deep. Crews are installing new 80-ft pipe w/a focus on your safety.”
