MARYLAND (WUSA9) -- Officials said the American Legion parking lot at the Laurel MARC station has been closed until further notice.

The closure occurred due to flooding of the Patuxent River.

Parking capacity will be reduced by at least 40%. Officials advice Laurel passengers to allow extra time to drive to Muirkirk or Savage stations. Laurel tickets are honored at both stations at no additional charge.

For directions to the stations, see below:

Muirkirk: drive south on Route 1, about 6 miles south of Laurel. You will pass the station on your left. Go under the overpass and turn right on Muirkirk Meadows Road. Go about ½ mile and turn right onto Muirkirk Road. Cross the bridge over Route 1 then turn left into the station.

Savage is located off Route 32 at Dorsey Run Road. Coming east on 32, go straight through the stoplight at the top of the exit ramp, and turn right into the station.
