HAGERSTOWN — East Antietam Street between Cannon Avenue and King Street in Hagerstown is closed so a pedestrian bridge connecting the former Washington County Hospital complex to Pangborn Hall can be demolished, according to the Hagerstown city website.
Demolition of the bridge is in the first phase of the hospital demolition process, according to a published report in March. That phase involves demolishing the bridge and the newer additions to the hospital along King Street.
Brandenburg Industrial was awarded the contract by Meritus Health to demolish the hospital, and they applied for a demolition permit from the city of Hagerstown in early March.
The street was closed at 7 a.m. Thursday. The work is expected to last until 5 p.m. Thursday, June 2.
