But the proposal drew criticism from the community.Liz Ziemski, an agency spokeswoman, said setting up a simulated roundabout using temporary signs and traffic cones or barrels is a compromise.

HANOVER, Pa. -- Anyone who munches a pretzel or potato chip knows of Hanover, Pa., home to a snack food industry that feeds the East Coast. Just six miles north of the Mason-Dixon Line, Hanover is small-town America with the Pennsylvania Dutch style of cleanliness and order.Marylanders, particularly from northern Baltimore and Carroll counties, have a long relationship with Hanover. They come to Codorus State Park, about three miles east, to boat and fish its 1,276-acre lake, camp on its remaining 2,000 acres, or swim in one of the nation's largest pools.
