Maryland State Highway Administration officials might have to curb part of their plans to renovate downtown Hagerstown's streetscape next spring.
City officials told them Tuesday that plans to expand curbs and sidewalks into the street at several intersections could create traffic jams because tractor trailers might no longer have room to turn.
Bill Park, the state's project engineer, said he was looking for that kind of feedback from city officials and the public.
Each intersection will be reviewed to ensure there is room for turning trucks, Park said.
Yolanda Takesian, the Maryland Department of Transportation's neighborhood conservation program coordinator, said Hagerstown's streetscape was chosen for the $1 million renovation because of community support. She wanted to ensure that support was still present before the state proceeded.
