SHA: Nanticoke Road to be open before Memorial Day


WICOMICO COUNTY, Md. – A major road project is well on its way to completion by Memorial Day. Road crews have been hard at work fixing and paving Nanticoke Road, a road that was a complete wash out back in the Fall.

SHA tells us contractors have working around the clock at Nanticoke Road to make sure the severe weather we’ve been seeing doesn’t affect the end date.

We’re told they are on schedule and maybe even ahead of it, but one thing SHA is promising — Nanticoke will be open by Memorial Day.

“We’ve built a fail safe system so we have a second dam in there now so if the first dam that’s there if it gets overwhelmed then the water will divert to the second dam,” explains SHA District Engineer Jay Meredith.
