South Edgewood Drive was blocked off Monday from the intersection with East Baltimore Street in Funkstown due to a sewer main break, said Brenda Haynes, Funkstown's clerk and treasurer. “A maintenance worker from one of the pumping stations found the break last night,” she said. “Workers came out at 6 p.m. yesterday.” The sewer main was carrying sewage to a treatment plant, but no sewage got on the road, Haynes said. Work crews from Henson and Son worked to repair the sewer main Monday, Haynes said.

On the banks of Antietam Creek rests the tiny hamlet of Funkstown, the realization of a dream of two brothers in the 18th century. Seeking their fortune in land speculation, brothers Henry and Jacob Funk, immigrants from Germany, came to Western Maryland in 1749 from Virginia, according to documents held in the Western Maryland collection at the Washington County Free Library in Hagerstown. Henry Funk acquired 88 acres of land in 1754 in the form of a grant by Lord Frederick Calvert, the sixth and last Lord Baltimore.

FUNKSTOWN -- Funkstown officials opened bids Monday night for curbing work on Poplar and Chestnut streets, then decided to hold off on moving forward with the project until money becomes available. Town officials are considering changing the entrances to Poplar and Chestnut streets from Edgewood Drive. The blocks nearest Edgewood were made one-way in 2007 to prevent drivers coming through town on Edgewood from cutting through on the residential streets to avoid traffic signals.

Construction on the first phase of the Funkstown bypass is not expected to begin until spring of 2012 at the earliest, a year later than planned, according to Robert Slocum, Washington County's deputy director of public works. County officials said last September that the project would be delayed because of sight-distance limitations in the area of Frederick Street at the point where the new road would intersect. The issue will be resolved with a roundabout at the intersection, Slocum said Wednesday.
