Some West End traffic will be affected for several months by the demolition of the 210-unit Westview Homes public housing complex, a Hagerstown Housing Authority official said.
Starting Monday, Lanvale Street from Ross Street to about 200 feet east of Buena Vista Avenue will be closed to traffic for an undetermined period of time, housing officials said.
Contractor Harkin Builders Inc. of Marriotsville, Md., started demolition last month on the part of Westview Homes along Main Avenue and Lanvale Street. That demolition should be finished by mid-February, Housing Authority officials said.
Westview Homes is being demolished and replaced by a class-integrated neighborhood Housing Authority officials say should reinvigorate the West End community and improve the city.
