Hamilton Boulevard options considered
A four-way stop, eliminating parking spaces and lowering the speed limit are options Hagerstown City Council members are considering to slow drivers on Hamilton Boulevard.
A public hearing will be held on the matter Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the council's regular meeting at City Hall.
Officials said they would distribute flyers in the neighborhood to help make residents aware of the hearing.
Three options are being considered to slow drivers and make the intersections safer. They are:
Increase enforcement of the 30 mph speed limit.
Install a four-way stop sign at Magnolia Avenue.
Lower the speed limit to 25 mph and increase sight distance from the intersections by eliminating several parking spaces.
City Engineer Bruce Johnson recommended the last option, but some council members said they want to try a four-way stop sign.
