It might take about $45 million to turn a large tract near Hagerstown into a technology business park, including the cost of building roads and utilities to support it, Washington County Public Works Director Joseph Kroboth III said Friday. But the payoff, over time, is expected to be large, Kroboth said. Besides a business park generating local industry and high-paying jobs, he said the project would create new tax revenue - possibly covering the government investment within 10 years.

With an estimated construction cost of nearly $30 million, a network of roads that eventually will connect Eastern Boulevard North to Robinwood Drive is viewed by Washington County officials as a remedy to growing congestion on two major Hagerstown corridors. It's also the hope of county and local development officials that the infrastructure will pave the way for a proposed high-tech business park east of Hagerstown that could boost tax revenue and create thousands of local jobs over the next two decades.
