Washington County Planning Commisson OKs FedEx terminal site plan

February 05, 2008|By JOSHUA BOWMAN

The Washington County Planning Commission on Monday voted to approve a site plan for a FedEx freight terminal near the intersection of Md. 63 and Interstate 70 west of Hagerstown.

Construction permits can be issued as soon as county departments sign off on the project, which could be "as early as a few weeks," Washington County Planning Department Director Michael C. Thompson said last week.

The 137-acre truck terminal will serve about 200 trucks per day, according to plans for the project.

It will include a 142,160-square-foot loading dock with 280 loading doors, an 8,000-square-foot office building and a 14,160-square-foot garage with fuel pumps, according to plans.

The terminal also will include 892 truck-parking spaces and will have about 167 employees per shift, according to plans.

The property already is zoned for industrial and commercial use, so the planning commission's approval only was based on whether the project met zoning regulations, Planning Commissioner and Washington County Commissioner James F. Kercheval said.
