Today, I had the day off because of Sandy and so this morning I decided to go the North Tract to check things out. As soon as I came up to the entrance of the North Tract, I spotted an Anne Arundel County Police patrol car blocking Maryland 198. The officer in the car told me that the highway was blocked because the water was too high going under the bridge and they were concerned that the weight of vehicles on it could cause it to collapse.
I looked to the right and discovered that the ball field next to Bald Eagle Drive and Bald Eagle Drive itself were completely inundated. Obviously, the main gate was blocked due to the water.
