What better way can there be to draw attention to the need for a road construction project than to announce it at one of the county's busiest intersections at rush hour?
State and local officials gathered Friday afternoon at Fidelity Bank at the intersection of Edgewood Drive and Dual Highway as Gov. Robert Ehrlich and Maryland Transportation Secretary Robert Flanagan announced that Hagerstown, Washington County and the state jointly were funding planning and engineering work for improvements to the intersection.
The design work will cost $103,000, according to a release from the governor's office. Of that, Hagerstown and Washington County each are paying $34,000. The state will pick up the remainder.
