Road work is scheduled to begin Monday, June 27, on Manor Drive between Dual Highway and Pangborn Boulevard, according to a press release from the city of Hagerstown. J & P Excavating Company will start the construction of sidewalks on that portion of Manor Drive. The project will require some patching work and excavation on the pavement of the road, so it will affect traffic. Flaggers will be directing traffic when necessary during the project. There will also be cones, barricades and other traffic control devices.

Robinwood Drive has had periodic lane closures Tuesday and today near the Hagerstown Community College due to road work. Traffic has sometimes been sluggish in both directions from Meritus Medical Center to the college and from Jefferson Boulevard to the college. The road has been subject to lane closures so a fiber optic line could be placed in the street, according to Allan Snider, owner of Snider & Son. The line is being placed there to provide internet service to DH Web, an internet design company located at 11377 Robinwood Drive in Hagerstown.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- A tiny crustacean has halted work on an Eastern Panhandle road project, and $21 million set aside for that work is now going elsewhere. The state Department of Transportation has to devise a plan to protect the habitat of a rare isopod, a half-inch crustacean living where W.Va. Route 9 is being widened between Charles Town and the Virginia border. That could take a while, because the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has to sign off on the plan. Because the highway funds would be lost if they weren't allocated by Oct. 1, Gov. Joe Manchin shifted the money to road work in Fairmont.

A Washington County Circuit Court civil jury Tuesday found the State of Maryland and Craig Paving Company were blameless in connection with a traffic accident that claimed the lives of three teenagers five years ago. Robert and Catherine Horst of Cearfoss filed the lawsuit in 1998. They were seeking $3.5 million in damages for the deaths of their twin 16-year-old sons, Shawn and Shane Horst, in 1995. The boys, who were on their way to school, were passengers in a car driven by their friend and next-door neighbor, Travis Christopher Hyman, 16. All three died when Hyman's 1990 Toyota Corolla crossed the center line on the Greencastle Pike and struck a dump truck head-on.
