What:
          
The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will host a public meeting regarding a proposed roundabout at MD 144 (West Washington Street) and Western Maryland Parkway (MD 910C) near Hagerstown.

When:
          
Tuesday, December 10, 2013, 6 to 8 p.m.

(The meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 17, 2013 if county public schools are closed or if the county’s snow emergency plan is in effect.)

Where: 
       
Winter Street Elementary School (Cafeteria), 59 Winter Street, Hagerstown

Why: 
            
SHA proposes to replace the intersection at MD 144 and Western Maryland Parkway with a roundabout for improved safety and traffic flow. During construction, through-traffic on MD 144 would be detoured onto US 40. 

The informational meeting will acquaint members of the public with the project and allow attendees to share their project-related comments and concerns with the project team. At 6:15 PM, SHA representatives will give a brief presentation about the proposed improvements and the construction process. Staff will be available before and after the presentation to discuss project issues and answer questions.
