The street closure had been planned in advance so a portion of the former hospital complex fronting King Street can be torn down, according to the City of Hagerstown.
Detours have been set up for motorists to drive around the area, using Antietam Street, Mulberry Street and Cannon Avenue.
Brandenburg Industrial was awarded the contract by Meritus Health to demolish the hospital, according to a published report in May. The company applied for a demolition permit from the city of Hagerstown in early March.
King Street was to reopen at about 6 p.m. Monday but is expected be closed Tuesday and Wednesday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day.
