New Windsor corner to be widened NORTHWEST -- Taneytown * Union Bridge * New Windsor * Uniontown

March 29, 1993

Money to widen the troublesome corner of Route 75 and Main Street in New Windsor is expected to be available in the next fiscal year, Councilwoman Rebecca H. Harman said.

Ms. Harman said she has spoken to a State Highway Administration district engineer, who says the work will be done during fiscal 1994.

"The power company will take down those poles and wires so the road work can start," said Ms. Harman. "When it is done, we will plant some flower and things for a memorial park."

The state purchased the land from Town Clerk and Treasurer Richard Warehime and his family several years ago.

The State Highway Administration plans to widen the narrow strip to allow more turning room for trucks that use the street to get to Lehigh Portland Cement in Union Bridge and points farther north.

The town's three-tiered antique fountain will also be placed in the park once the the road work is completed, Ms. Harman said.
