Hampstead's Main Street will see some upgrades in the coming years as the state of Maryland awards $20 million for revitalization projects.
The Main Street Revitalization plan began in fall 2010 and aims to improve drainage, sidewalks, lighting and more along Main Street from the North Woods Trail intersection at the south to the CSX Railroad crossing at the north, according to the Carroll County Times.
The project will be advertised to construction companies in late summer of 2014, according to the Times.
Commissioner Haven Shoemaker learned during Thursday's Board of County Commissioners’ meeting that the Town of Hampstead was awarded $20 million dollars from the State Department of Transportation for its Main Street revitalization project, according to a news release.
Shoemaker, who helped lay the foundation for a Hampstead revitalization plan as Mayor of Hampstead, said he was thrilled that the state was funding the project, according to a news release.
The Hampstead Main Street revitalization project was listed as Carroll County’s number one Neighborhood Conservation project this year.
