It took a few months and the personal intervention of Washington County Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook, but the county has obtained the right of way needed for the widening of the Park Hall Road bridge in Rohrersville. However, the county probably won't be able to finish the work until next spring, County Attorney Richard Douglas said. The one-lane bridge was removed in late May after it was inspected and found to be structurally unsound. The county said it is legally required to replace it with a two-lane bridge to meet safety standards.

MOUNT AETNA tarar@herald-mail.com The majority of the Washington County Commissioners said Tuesday they support a zoning change that would allow a Mount Aetna-area quarry expansion. Approval of an expansion would overturn an earlier decision by the county's Planning Commission. Residents living near the quarry said they were disappointed by the commissioners' decision. Many residents and several expert witnesses have said a quarry expansion could have negative effects on surrounding property, including causing more sinkholes from blasting near already porous grounds, increasing traffic, and disrupting a peaceful and historic area.
