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.

Heavy rainstorms swept through parts of Morgan County early Saturday evening, dropping 4 to 6 inches of rain in about three hours.  In a matter of minutes, the quickly rising floodwaters put much of downtown Berkeley Springs under several feet of water shortly before 7 p.m.  “It was incredible,” Richard Boldt of Richmond, Va., said Sunday. “I've never seen it come up this fast.”  Boldt said he came to town with his wife to visit the town's historic bathhouses in Berkeley Springs State Park, along U.S. 522.  But that wasn't possible, as most of the park was under 3 to 5 feet of water before the flooding receded late Saturday night.
