Estimates for traffic study to be sought



FUNKSTOWN - Funkstown Town Council announced at Monday night's town meeting it might conduct a traffic count study in town.

The proposed study is part of a resident-initiated plan to ease traffic woes on Chestnut and Poplar streets. For about five months, residents on those streets have been discussing solutions with town council to combat heavy traffic flow and, at times, dangerous conditions.

Town Clerk Brenda Haynes said the council will be getting estimates on the cost of the study.

The study would measure the traffic volume on those streets. Haynes said plans for traffic on Chestnut and Poplar streets are still "up in the air."

If the council votes to conduct a traffic count, the town would pay for the study, but Haynes said there might be some grant money available to offset the cost to the town.
