October 16, 2007

Work crews from Craig Paving Inc. began milling and overlaying West Wilson Boulevard between Summit Avenue and South Potomac Street in Hagerstown on Monday.

At 7 a.m., crews began milling eastbound lanes from Summit Avenue to South Potomac Street, work that is expected to take about two days. Eastbound traffic will be narrowed to one lane, and drivers will travel over rough milled surfaces. Parking will be prohibited along the right side of the eastbound lanes.

On Wednesday at 7 a.m., crews will begin milling westbound lanes from South Potomac Street to Summit Avenue, work that also is expected to take about two days. Westbound traffic will be narrowed to one lane and drivers will travel over rough milled surfaces. Parking will be prohibited along the right side of the westbound lanes.

On Oct. 22 at 9 a.m., crews will begin overlay in the intersection of Maryland Avenue at West Wilson Boulevard. Northbound Maryland Avenue traffic will be detoured to Downsville Road and South Potomac Street. Southbound Maryland Avenue traffic, and eastbound and westbound Wilson Boulevard traffic, will be detoured to First Street. Motorists approaching the intersection should expect to encounter barricades, traffic control devices and detour signs until the work is completed. The intersection is expected to be closed that day only.
