firstname.lastname@example.org Dual Highway won't be able to handle traffic unless it gets an extra lane in each direction and major intersection improvements in the next four years, according to a State Highway Administration study. State and local officials pledged Thursday to share the costs of improving the road while also requiring developers to contribute. "Time is essential here," Hagerstown City Engineer Rodney Tissue said. The Edgewood Drive intersection already is failing and should have three left-turn lanes going east onto Dual Highway, Assistant District Engineer for Traffic George Small said.
