Hagerstown announces road work projects

July 31, 2009

The City of Hagerstown has provided the following information about road work that will take place during the coming week.

Those with questions may contact the city's Department of Engineering & Code Administration at 301-739-8577, ext. 125.

North Mulberry Street, East Avenue



Work crews from Valentine Electric Inc. will begin construction to install traffic signal poles on the northwest and southeast corners of the intersection of North Mulberry Street and East Avenue Monday at 7 a.m., weather permitting.

The work is expected to continue until the end of August.

The construction will be in the sidewalk areas, but construction vehicles will occupy portions of the street as needed.

Traffic flow will be maintained at all times. However, the travel lane on southbound Mulberry Street will be shifted to the left side of the street as traffic approaches the intersection. For that reason, parking will be prohibited from the left side of that 200 block of Mulberry Street between East Avenue and Jefferson Street, for several days at a time throughout the project.

Motorists approaching the work zone will encounter barricades, signs, flaggers and other traffic control devices.

 The "No Parking" restriction will only be in place for the days that the contractor needs to set equipment in the street.

 Emergency vehicles will be able to pass through the N. Mulberry Street/East Avenue intersection during the length of the project.

 

Mill Street, Church Street



Work crews from Craig Paving Inc. will be overlaying the existing pavement on Mill Street between Frederick Street and the western end of the street at Julia Manor beginning Monday at 7 a.m., weather permitting.

On Tuesday, work will shift to Church Street between Potomac Street and Jonathan Street, where final pavement patches will be installed.

The contractor will attempt to use flaggers to keep one lane of traffic flowing around the work area at both work areas.

Motorists approaching the work areas may encounter cones, barricades, flagmen, and other traffic control devices. Delays are likely, and motorists are advised to use alternate routes around the work zones.

The contractor anticipates that the work at both locations will be completed by 5p.m.

As with all paving operations, rain or other adverse weather conditions may cause the work to be delayed or rescheduled.

Emergency vehicles will be able to pass through the work zones; however, dispatchers should be aware that this work likely will cause traffic congestion and delays in the area.

Florida Avenue



As part of the City's annual Pavement Preservation Program, portions of Florida Avenue will be resurfaced in the next two weeks.

Weather permitting, work crews from Craig Paving Inc. will be milling and overlaying the existing street pavement on Florida Avenue between Linganore Avenue and Stratford Avenue beginning Wednesday at 7 a.m.

While the contractor will attempt to keep at least one lane of traffic flowing on Florida Avenue, there may be short periods of time when the street is closed to all traffic.

To the greatest extent practicable, the contractor will maintain access for local residents to reach their properties. Motorists approaching the work area might encounter signs, cones, barricades, flaggers, and other traffic control devices.

Delays are likely, and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes away from the work area.

The contractor expects to complete the work in this section of Florida Avenue by 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 7th.

Emergency vehicles will be able to pass through the work zone; however, dispatchers should be aware that delays are likely due to traffic congestion in the area.
