SHA To Start Resurfacing Projects In Worcester And Wicomico Co.

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - Maryland State Highway Administration is planning on re-surfacing a total of 12 miles of roads in two local counties.

In Worcester County, starting on Monday, April 8th, SHA will be resurfacing seven miles of Route 50 in Berlin. The work will take place between Main Street (MD 818) and the Wicomico County line at the Pocomoke River. Crews will shut down a single Westbound lane on weekdays from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM. SHA suggests using Old Ocean City Road (MD 346) as an alternative route. The project, which is expected to be completed by summer, will also include patching damaged sections of pavement, and restriping the highway.

In Wicomico County, starting Monday, April 8th, SHA will be resurfacing several roads in the county, totaling nearly five miles. The project should be wrapped up by June 30th, but until then drivers should anticipate delays as single lanes will be closed on weekdays from 7:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Roads being resurfaced include:

• Southbound US 13 Business (Salisbury Parkway) between US 50 (Ocean Gateway) and Newton Street;
• Southbound US 13 (Fruitland Boulevard) between US 50/US 13 Bypass to the Somerset County line;
• Eastbound US 50 Business (Salisbury Parkway) - two sections between Boundary Street to Civic Avenue;
• Westbound US 50 (Ocean  Gateway) from Hobbs Road to the US 50/US 13 (Salisbury Bypass); and
• MD 347 (Quantico Road) between Chestnut Street to US 50.
