Several dozen Clarksville residents say they're outraged by a county decision to allow a developer to close off a large part of a well-traveled road for four months beginning Tuesday -- an action critics say could cause major traffic congestion.Residents who live on or near Sanner Road say the county should have given them more notice and held a public hearing to solicit concerns about the closing of the road, across from Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, near routes 29 and 32."I am very concerned about what has happened," Hattie Myers, a 30-year resident, said last week at a community meeting called to discuss the road closing.
