A Clear Spring resident submitted a question through Mail Call recently, asking about the ongoing roadwork at the intersection of U.S. 40 and Md. 63 (Greencastle Pike) west of Hagerstown. “Observe the Maryland taxpayers' money at work, at Huyetts Crossroads,” the person wrote. “The traffic signal supports that were built and installed one year ago are being destroyed, because they were in the wrong location? Blunder, or not?” Heather Keels, spokeswoman for the Maryland State Highway Administration, wrote in an email Thursday that the traffic signals are being relocated as part of a project to add additional turn lanes and bicycle lanes along Md. 63. “The letter-writer is mistaken about these poles having been installed one year ago; the existing traffic signal poles were put in about 10 years ago when U.S. 40 was widened,” Keels wrote.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Hamilton Township and Chambersburg are considering recommendations to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation on how best to improve traffic flow on U.S. 30 west of the borough, including making Loudon Street eastbound-only. A study of alternate routes between U.S. 30 west and U.S. 11 south of the borough concluded that most traffic is headed into - not around - Chambersburg and the best results might be achieved by improving U.S. 30, Borough Manager Eric Oyer told the council Monday.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Much of the traffic from the proposed 3,300-home Hunt Field development will be routed to Charles Town Bypass, preventing feared congestion downtown, according to a traffic study recently released by developer Greenvest L.C. of Vienna, Va. According to the study, Greenvest will build a railroad overpass that will link two sections of the 1,000-acre property currently divided by railroad tracks. The overpass, which will cost a little over $1 million to build, will allow Hunt Field residents from any part of the development to reach the east side of the property, where they can access the Charles Town Bypass, the study says.
