The City’s 2017 Pavement Preservation program is ongoing, and will continue into October. Work crews from C. William Hetzer, Inc. and their subcontractors will be filling cracks in the existing pavement, patching deteriorated areas, and milling and paving streets at various locations around the City. While the schedule is weather-dependent, the contractor anticipates working on the following streets over the next two weeks:
Pennsylvania Avenue (1300 block)
Wilson Blvd. (areas near intersection with Rose Hill Avenue)
Church Street (near Hagerstown Rescue Mission)
South Potomac Street (near Wilson Blvd.)
North Avenue (east of intersection with Potomac Street)
Kensington Drive (near Outer Drive)
Glenwood Avenue (near Beechwood Drive)
Church Street (Daycotah Avenue to Woodpoint Avenue)
West Side Avenue (near Washington Street)
Eldridge Drive (near Bowman Avenue)
Wesel Blvd. (near Wendy’s restaurant)
Motorists approaching these work areas will encounter flagmen, cones, barricades, and other traffic control devices. Temporary lane closures and lane shifts will be required to provide adequate space to perform the work. While the contractor anticipates keeping at least one lane of traffic open on these streets, congestion and delays are likely near the work areas. Additional advisories will be distributed as necessary. It is anticipated that the Pavement Preservation work will be completed by the end of October.
Emergency vehicles will be able to pass through all of the work areas, but dispatchers should be aware that delays and congestion are likely.
Please contact the City’s Department of Parks & Engineering at (301) 739-8577 extension 125 if there are any questions regarding this advisory.
