Governor Announces Funding for Hagerstown

December 22nd, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today joined Transportation Deputy Secretary James F. Ports, Jr., Senator Andrew Serafini, Delegate Neil Parrott, Delegate Brett Wilson, and County Commissioner President Terry Baker, and other state and local officials in downtown Hagerstown to make two important announcements impacting Hagerstown, Western Maryland, and the entire state. First, the governor announced the start of construction to widen I-81, a $105 million project that is the first phase of improvements to enhance safety and relieve traffic congestion along the heavily-traveled corridor.

Working with the West Virginia Department of Transportation, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will widen I-81 between US 11 in West Virginia and MD 63/MD 68 in Washington County to a total of six travel lanes, and reconstruct the four bridges within the project limits.
