Streetscape project to improve downtown
Downtown Hagerstown pedestrians and drivers will face a major renovation of roads and sidewalks next year, according to a Maryland State Highway Administration official.
The state is expected to embark on a $1 million urban streetscape reconstruction downtown in May 1999 and have it completed by that winter, said Bill Park, engineering systems team manager in LaVale, Md. The project will be paid for with state and federal funds.
Gov. Parris N. Glendening will be in Hagerstown on Monday to promote the project, which is part of his anti-sprawl Smart Growth initiative.
