Utility work starting on Eastern Boulevard
Utility installation along Eastern Boulevard at Opal Court in Hagerstown will begin tonight, causing some traffic inconveniences, according to a news release from the Hagerstown Engineering Department.
The work will include street digging and installation of sewage pipes, officials said. Work will be done daily between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. until it is complete.
Officials said the contractor is expected to finish Saturday, but the work could continue through next week if problems arise.
Sewage pact OK'd for development
The Hagerstown City Council gave the go-ahead Tuesday to a sewage system agreement with Washington County to serve about 135 homes near the Fountain Head area.
The agreement covers the 68 acres known as the Halterman Farm between Longmeadow Road and Leitersburg Pike, where developer Dan Ryan Homes plans to build single-family homes, according to city information.
