Access to the schools will still be possible from MD Route 22, the release states.

Drivers who normally take Thomas Run Road should take an alternate route during the construction period.

The county has also closed part of Wheel Road, a closure that is expected to last about six months.

The Harford County Department of Public Works began a highway project June 13 on Wheel Road between Patterson Mill Road and Laurel Bush Road, according to a separate release from the county.

it was idiotic not to have incorporated this work into the traffic circle that was put in last year. Who ever is responsible for this should certainly be fired!
