Route 75 awaits streetlights, sidewalks

Union Bridge will be getting streetlights along Route 75 to Myers Super Thrift Market sometime this year, Councilwoman Bonnie M. Hyde said.

The town also is looking into the construction of sidewalks along Route 75 so patrons can get to the market without walking in the street.

Potomac Edison will charge the town $2,170 for the lights, which will extend along the road next to the market. The original estimate was $500 higher because Potomac Edison wanted to hire professionals to control traffic.

Ms. Hyde said she suggested using local people to regulate traffic flow and that reduced the cost.


* Taneytown: Units from Taneytown were dispatched to investigate reports of fire alarms in two buildings in the city within 2 1/2 hours Thursday. The first call was on Commerce Street at 9:03 p.m.; the second was on Roth Avenue at 11:30 p.m. Units were out for 15 minutes on each call.
