HARMONY CHURCH ROAD TO CLOSE TONIGHT
Detour for emergency pipe replacement through weekend


LEESBURG—Crews will close Harmony Church Road at 7 p.m. tonight near Peale Lane for an emergency pipe replacement. Joint failures and significant erosion of the 36-inch, 40-foot long pipe were recently discovered.

During the closure, drivers will be detoured via Woodburn Road, Dry Mill Road, Catoctin Circle and Route 15.

The road is expected to reopen early Monday morning with a temporary stone surface. Final paving will likely be completed during the day Monday with one lane of alternating traffic and a flagging operation.

The cost to replace the pipe is approximately $500,000.
