East Main Street Sidewalk Improvement by State Highway Administration
The State Highway Administration will be sending a road construction crew to Thurmont to update sidewalks, curbs, and gutters along the East Street roadway. This is paid for by the State of Maryland as part of the requirement for handicap accessibility along walkways on State roads, as outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Crews will be leveling sidewalks and creating easy roll ramps where needed from sidewalk to road crossings, from Center Street to the Elementary School. This will create a safer travel route for wheelchair-bound citizens. The crew will start working in July. Many residents along East Street have already been notified. Streets will not be closed, but crews will be managing traffic.
