Ribbon cutting Sept. 28 for Halfway road

September 17, 1999

A ribbon cutting ceremony for the Hopewell Road and Halfway Boulevard Intersection project has been scheduled for Tuesday, Sept, 28, at noon.

Construction has began last summer on the project, which is designed to improve traffic flow as the Hopewell area develops into a business and industry center.

The project cost more than $2.5 million, and included a new traffic signal, more than 4,000 linear feet of new road, 3,600 feet of storm drain work and nearly 2,000 feet of water lines.

The completed project also includes the extension of Blake Road for 400 feet.

"Continued economic development is critical for our region," said Washington County Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook. "This completed construction has enhanced our appearance, improved traffic flow and safety, and is eliminating bottlenecks."
