Some News on the Sewer Line project from Marsh Hill to the treatment facility:

Western Conveyance Project Update   Read In Browser
Section II of the Western Conveyance Project (the end of Marsh Hill Rd, Shingle Camp Ter, Shingle Camp Rd, Sandy Shores Rd, Sandy Beach Ln and Stockslager Rd to Penelacres Ln) is set begin on May 2, 2016.  The Contractor is planning to start working at the end of Marsh Hill Rd and proceed south to Shingle Camp Rd at the beginning of their work.  Weekly updates of work progress and anticipated work will be posted on this website.
Please be aware that work on Shingle Camp Ter and Shingle Camp Rd will result in very limited access due to the narrow nature of these roads.  The Contractor will provide access to residences along these roads, however extended delays may be experienced.  It is strongly recommended that residents make appropriate plans and/or coordinate with the Contractor as needed to ensure timely access or in the case of an emergency.  Garrett County Public Safety Communications is aware of the project and is in contact with the Contractor in the case of an emergency for coordination purposes.
