Street work will affect city traffic
Hagerstown drivers will run into altered traffic patterns during the next two weeks as contractors seal cracks in city roads to prevent further deterioration, Assistant City Engineer Rodney Tissue said.
Drivers might be directed to one side of the road on one-lane roads so the tar can dry, Tissue said.
The work will start Tuesday, weather permitting, and is expected to be done between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., he said.
Work on the busiest streets will be done between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to try to avoid rush-hour traffic, Tissue said. Those streets include Potomac, Frederick, Jefferson, Locust, and Mulberry streets and Eastern Boulevard.
