West Baltimore Street remained closed between Hood Street and Summit Avenue on Monday afternoon while workers from the City of Hagerstown’s Water Department worked to repair a 12-inch water main and fill in a sinkhole in the street.
The water main broke at about 3 a.m., said Michael Spiker, director of utilities for the City of Hagerstown Utilities Department.
The running water from the water main created a sinkhole in the street, according to Spiker.
Workers shut down the water main when they arrived on the scene.
Repairing the water main required more excavation in the street, according to Spiker.
