HCC proposes road to serve as second entrance

October 15, 2005|By Tara Reilly

Hagerstown Community College has proposed building a road that would serve as a second entrance to the campus.

The road would provide "easy access" to HCC from Eastern Boulevard, according to Washington County's fiscal year 2006 Capital Improvement Program (CIP).

HCC spokeswoman Beth Stull said Friday few details were available about the proposed road, which is tentatively planned for 2011.

Stull said preliminary discussions have included whether the road would be accessed from Eastern Boulevard or Jefferson Boulevard.

The cost of the proposed project listed in the CIP is $1.98 million.

"There is considerable congestion at the current entrance because of development in the Robinwood area. Continuing growth of the student population with one campus entrance also substantially contributes to the need for this project," the county's CIP states.

The campus is currently accessed from Robinwood Drive.

Stull said HCC anticipates traffic to increase near that entrance with continuing development planned for the area.
