Traffic has been slow on Baltimore Street near its intersection with South Locust Street all week due to roadwork. Cones have been set up to designate traffic lanes. The roadwork is related to the installation of a new Columbia Gas main on Baltimore Street late last year. Bob Bond of Henson & Son Inc., the company contracted for the construction, said that crews have been working there since December. “We put all new sidewalks in, then we had to come back and do the streets,” he said.

We appreciate good intentions and we appreciate elected officials who are good stewards of public money. Sometimes, though, it would also be helpful if they would think a little beneath the surface. Because sometimes “savings” can wind up being costly. To that point, we are thankful that the majority of the Washington County Commissioners brushed aside a suggestion by Commissioners President Terry Baker that would have halted highway improvements to the Robinwood Drive corridor.
