“Just see where all these oversized loads are using Route 40 West, are putting large potholes in the concrete bridge on Route 40. The bridge is already deteriorated. This should be fixed immediately.” - Clear Spring “I never did see a response to a caller's question as to why we cannot fill out our tax returns until after the end of January. The tax changes that occurred at the beginning of this year should have absolutely no effect on 2012 taxes. Why is the IRS making everybody wait?

Speed cameras that were installed to monitor school zones in Hagerstown have generated nearly $1 million in revenue over eight months. City spokeswoman Erin Wolfe said speeding tickets issued as a result of the cameras amounted to about $979,606 in total earnings from April 2012, when the first cameras were installed, to November 2012. Of the amount raised from the 11 cameras that monitor 10 school zones in Hagerstown, the city through November received about $587,764, or roughly 60 percent of the money taken in from the tickets, Wolfe said.

Editor's note: Each Monday, The Herald-Mail will highlight an infrastructure issue or other problem and will try to find out what is being done to fix or improve the situation. We will not tackle situations involving neighborhood or domestic disputes, or consumer problems. The problem: Recently, the road striping on Pennsylvania Avenue (U.S. 11) in Hagerstown changed where it meets Northern Avenue. The road was lined for two lanes going north through the intersection instead of one. After Northern Avenue, though, the road narrowed to one lane.
