HAGERSTOWN — Lanes are closed to traffic in three locations near the intersection of Dual Highway and Edgewood Drive.

The right lane of Dual Highway eastbound is closed between Mount Aetna Road and the intersection, the left lane of Edgewood Drive northbound is closed at the intersection, and the right lane of Edgewood Drive southbound is closed at the intersection.

Crews from Pessoa Construction Co. are working along the sidewalk of the northbound lane of Edgewood Drive south of the intersection.

According to a published report in October, sidewalk repair work is among the minor tasks that need to be completed as a result of the expansion project at the intersection of Dual Highway and Edgewood Drive. The project is substantially complete, according to the Maryland State Highway Administration.

Other tasks needing to be completed may include patching up a roadway, patching up a driveway and replanting flowers and bushes in some areas. The minor work near the intersection could continue until the end of the year.

The Dual Highway-Edgewood Drive Intersection expansion project began in August 2009. It included widening both streets at the intersection, adding a left-turn lane from southbound Edgewood Drive to eastbound Dual Highway and making the intersection more pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly.

The project cost approximately $5 million.
