The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday approved a $310,000 request to repair a stretch of East Oak Ridge Drive between Antietam Creek and Md. 65 near Funkstown this fiscal year.

The County Commissioners agreed to "forward fund" the project with money allocated for road repairs in the proposed Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for fiscal year 2007, which begins July 1.

Information provided by the county states the project will be completed in the current fiscal year.

Public Works Director Gary Rohrer made the request for the advance payment.

Rohrer wrote in a report to the commissioners that the section of East Oak Ridge Drive that will be repaired "has been an on-going maintenance problem."

He wrote that it requires "major pavement repairs and construction."

He wrote that the road has an average daily traffic count of 8,857 vehicles.
