During the week of Aug. 30, work crews from Henson & Son Inc. will begin the replacement of storm drainage pipes on East Antietam Street between Cramer Alley, at the Washington County Free Library, and South Locust Street.
This project is being performed by the City of Hagerstown in support of the library's renovation/expansion project.
During daytime work hours, eastbound traffic on Antietam Street will be detoured to Baltimore Street, and on-street parking in the work zone will be restricted. Westbound traffic will be maintained.
At night and on nonworking days, the contractor will reopen eastbound Antietam Street to traffic when possible.
The installation of the new storm drainage pipes likely will require the relocation of several water, sanitary sewer and natural gas service laterals. Residents affected by these relocations will be notified in advance of any service interruptions.
This work is scheduled to be completed by November.
Westbound emergency vehicles will be able to pass through this block of Antietam Street during working hours, but eastbound vehicles will be forced to detour around the work zone.
