Traffic Light Comes To Rt 113/Rt 12 Intersection

Posted: Updated:

SNOW HILL, Md. - The intersection of Rt 113 and Rt 12 in Snow Hill has been the scene of 61 accidents, two fatal, since its completion in 2006.

Edwin Shockley, a former EMT who lives less than a mile away says he's seen it all, "we picked up more people dead there then probably all the other intersections combined."

Wednesday, the Maryland state highway administration flipped the switch, turning on traffic signals that motorists and local leaders a have been pushing for. 

In an effort to stop the collisions, last winter, SHA brought up the idea of a "j-turn," an elongated "u-turn,"but with the truck traffic along Rt 113, officials decided the traffic signal was a better fit. 

The $190,000 signals are the first step in a larger plan to build a bridge that would carry Rt 12 over US 113, an estimated $35 million project.

But those in charge say it might be quite some time before we see that change.
