September 23, 2011

The City of Hagerstown has issued the following traffic information.

  • Beginning Monday at 7 a.m., work crews from Craig Paving Inc. will patch existing street pavement at various locations as part of the city's annual Pavement Preservation program.
This work will involve cutting and removing existing pavement, repairing the aggregate base material and placing new bituminous pavement, according to a City of Hagerstown news release.

The contractor anticipates that the work locations will include:
  • Nottingham Road between Franklin Street and Salem Avenue
  • Pennsylvania Avenue north of Beechwood Drive
  • Oak Hill Avenue north of Prospect Avenue
This work will require temporary lane closures at the patch locations. The contractor plans to use flaggers to direct traffic around the work areas.

Emergency vehicles will be able to pass through these work areas, but dispatchers have been notified that traffic congestion and delays are likely near these locations.

The contractor hopes to have the patching work completed by Friday, Sept. 30.
  • Beginning Monday at 7 a.m., work crews from the Hagerstown Light Department will work on overhead lines, poles and transformers along West Antietam Street adjacent to the bridge that carries South Prospect Street over Antietam Street.
This work will involve parking aerial bucket trucks on West Antietam Street, and the eastbound "flyover lane" that connects Antietam Street to Prospect Street at the bridge, in order to access the overhead wires.

Flaggers will direct traffic around the work area. The "flyover lane" might be closed temporarily to allow the crews to complete their work.

Emergency vehicles will be able to pass through these work areas while the work is being performed.

It is anticipated that this work will be completed by Monday at 3:30 p.m.
