Work begins on Cypress Trail in Pocomoke

POCOMOKE, Md. –  Work has finally begun to give the Cypress Trail a much needed face-lift.

Pocomoke City received $40,000 in funding from the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration to upgrade the wooden walking surface of the Cypress Trail with composite boards to make them more damage resistant.

Crews were hard at work on Monday, replacing some of those boards.

Organizers of this effort say they hope the new trail will encourage more people to pay a visit to the park.

Jennifer Merritt, Pocomoke’s Circuit Rider said, “It is part of our revitalization effort for the City of Pocomoke to attract more visitors and have people already here enjoy the areas more along with our new Recreation Department.”

The city is looking for volunteers to help with work on this trail. Volunteers can choose to work a full day, part of a day, or many days.
