HAGERSTOWN gregs@herald-mail.com There are several traffic improvements being discussed for Garland Groh Boulevard in the city's West End - one of the city's most-traveled roads - but the timing on the projects hasn't been solidified. The road runs in front of The Centre at Hagerstown, the city shopping center that opened in 2000 and boasts one of the busiest Wal-Mart Supercenters in the country, a Home Depot store and several other large stores. Directly behind the shopping center is the Hager's Crossing housing development, where about 300 homes have been built and another 600 homes would be built in coming years under current plans.

One-third of those people stood and spoke against the idea, largely citing the potential impact on nearby Roadside Avenue.

Vehicles would then encounter an existing traffic light.
