Installation of storm drain to result in detour

July 22, 1998

Motorists driving through Hagerstown at night will be detoured around a portion of West Franklin Street for at least a week as crews install a new storm drain, Assistant City Engineer Rodney Tissue said.

The detour was to go into effect Tuesday night and to operate nightly between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., Tissue said.

Westbound drivers will be detoured onto Walnut Street and Church Street to get to Burhans Boulevard and back onto West Franklin Street, Tissue said.

The storm drain is in the road near Hagerstown City Police headquarters.

Crews will work at night to accommodate daytime traffic, he said.

The installation will take one to two weeks, Tissue said. Drivers may be detoured around the intersection of Burhans Boulevard and West Franklin Street in a week, he said.

The $200,000 project replaces a storm drain that was too small and dilapidated. Water from around George Street, Church Street and High Street goes through the drain on its way to Marsh Run and Antietam Creek.
