Hagerstown intersection to be closed for sewer, water line work

October 24, 2008

Work crews from the City of Hagerstown's Water and Sewer Department will install new sanitary sewer and water lines at the intersection of Jonathan and Bethel streets beginning Monday at 7 a.m.

The excavation required to perform the work will force the closure of the intersection. Eastbound traffic on Bethel Street will not be able to cross over Jonathan Street, according to a release from the City of Hagerstown's Department of Engineering and Code Administration.

The city is taking the following steps to accommodate local traffic in this area:

o Bethel Street west of Jonathan Street: The city will remove the bollards from the alley just to the west of Jonathan Street (behind the Bethel Gardens residential units), and will patch the pavement in the alley to allow local traffic to travel one way north to North Avenue.

o Bethel Street east of Jonathan Street: The city will temporarily make Bethel Street open to local two-way traffic between Jonathan Street and the alley that is 150 feet east of Henry Avenue. On-street parking will be removed from the north side of Bethel Street in this area to accommodate the new traffic pattern.

o The 200 block of Jonathan Street (between Church and Bethel streets) will remain closed to all traffic until further notice.

It is anticipated that the Jonathan Street/Bethel Street intersection will be closed for about two to three weeks from the start of this work.

Emergency vehicles will not be able to pass through the 200 block of Jonathan Street or the Jonathan Street/Bethel Street intersection while this work is being performed.

For information, call the city's Department of Engineering and Code Administration at 301-739-8577, ext. 125.
