Walkway to connect buildings Work to connect Hagerstown's City Hall to the neighboring Roslyn building is expected to begin during the second week of April. Glass walkways will connect the two buildings from the first to fourth floors, said George Andreve, manager of the city's Department of Community Development. A window on each of those floors in City Hall will become a doorway to the passageway into the Roslyn building, Andreve said. The project will enable at least one city department to move into part of the Roslyn building, and will accommodate other uses, including an existing produce market.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The Allison-Antrim Museum in Greencastle soon will have a completed brick walkway that will connect the museum to the parking lot and barn, thanks to Christopher Harbaugh's Eagle Scout project. Harbaugh began the project last Monday, with the help of volunteers from Greencastle-Antrim High School, his Scout troop and his father. By Thursday, most of the bricks for the walkway had been laid. "It's definitely a challenge," said Harbaugh, 16, who decided on this as his Eagle Scout project because his aunt, Bonnie Shockey, is the president of the museum.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Plans to build a nearly one-mile walkway connecting the Borough of Waynesboro to Washington Township along East Main Street ended this week when an angry State Sen. Terry Punt said he would pull the funding. Punt had secured $265,000 of the estimated $325,000 cost of the walkway. He criticized Waynesboro officials for dragging their feet on the project and for Renfrew Museum and Park officials for opposing it because of insurance liability and aesthetic concerns.

A plan to spend almost $60,000 to build a raised steel walkway on the roof of the Washington County Courthouse annex failed to gain support Tuesday from the Washington County Commissioners. A motion was not introduced, but the four members present were divided on whether to approve the project, with Commissioners James F. Kercheval and William J. Wivell calling for project leaders to seek a less- expensive alternative. Commissioner Kristin B. Aleshire and Commissioners President John F. Barr said they supported the project as proposed.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Borough Council Wednesday ended months of controversy when it gave its approval for a 1-mile pedestrian walkway that will link Waynesboro Mall with Wayne Heights Mall. The vote was 4-2 with Council President Douglas Tengler and Councilman Clint Barkdoll casting dissenting votes. The action paves the way for a joint venture between the borough and Washington Township for the sidewalk. It will begin at Waynesboro Mall and run east past the YMCA through Renfrew Park and Museum and end at Welty Road in Washington Township.

WAYNESBORO, PA. - Fifty thousand dollars worth of state grant money being requested to renovate Memorial Park would go toward replacing swings, creating a better and longer walkway, and making the park more accessible for wheelchairs. The Waynesboro Borough Council, in its grant application, will agree to provide matching funds to money provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. "This grant does not deal with anything green - no plants, no trees, no grass, no bushes," Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said.

More than $19 million was spent to rebuild the Big Slackwater section of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park near Williamsport, a massive project along the Potomac River that involved 121 columns bolted into rock to support elevated walkways. Bradley Clawson, chief ranger for the C&O Canal, thought the new concrete spans would be popular among fishermen. But Clawson said he never imagined the problem that has cropped up on the new section. People have been building fires on the walkway, and one of the blazes was so big that it damaged the surface of the walkway, leaving a pothole in the path.

WAYNESBORO, PA. -- Trees, Victorian-style lights and an imprinted walkway installed at Rotary Parking Lot are contributing to town officials' vision for the downtown's future. Patrick Fleagle, economic development director for Main Street Waynesboro Inc., said people can park for free in the municipal lot. They can go to West Main Street businesses through their back doors or by using a pedestrian walkway. "Most of the changes that occurred down there are aesthetic changes that lend themselves to the idea of a plaza," Fleagle said.
