Md. State Police to get new barracks

By Washington Post Editors

Construction of a new Maryland State Police Barracks near Hagerstown is beginning.

Thursday's groundbreaking ceremony includes scheduled speeches by Maryland State Police Superintendent Col. Terrence Sheridan and Department of General Services Secretary Alvin Collins.

The $10.1 million project includes a 33,000-square-foot building that will more than triple the size of the Washington County barracks built in 1973.

The structure also will house an expanded western regional crime lab, and office space for the Maryland Natural Resources Police and the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office.

It will be built near the existing barracks at the intersection of Interstate 70 and state Route 65.
