Alley to be closed Wednesday for renaming ceremony

July 06, 2010

The City of Hagerstown is holding an alley name unveiling Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the formally unnamed alley between First Street and Wilson Boulevard.

Because of the unveiling, the alley will be closed to all traffic between First Street and Wilson Boulevard from 6:45 to 9 p.m., according to the city. Pedestrians will be able to walk through the alley and reach the Krumpe's store entrance. Local traffic will have to detour around the closure using other city streets and alleys, the city said.

The new name of the alley is DoNut Alley. The unveiling is being done in conjunction with the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Krumpe's Do-Nuts in the location adjacent to the alley.

The Krumpe family has been making doughnuts since 1934, and the fourth generation is now working in the business, as well as 22 employees.
