Delays arise in Salisbury roundabout construction

SALISBURY, Md. – There are some delays in the construction on the roundabout in Salisbury but officials say things should finally get started next week.

The road work is centered at the intersection of Carroll Street, Riverside Drive, Mill Street and Camden Avenue. Construction was supposed to start at the end of October and be complete in mid-May. But officials say there were some issues involved in getting a work area for the contractor.

“So when you have a construction area, you’ll have a lay down area to put structures, equipment or things like that. When you’re working in the city that space can be tight. So they had to work out with the property owner where that would be, a private property owner,” says Rick Baldwin, the Engineering Supervisor for the city of Salisbury.

Now that the work area is finalized, shovels should be in the ground on Monday. The contractor will hopefully find a good stopping point around Christmas or New Years. But in all, the project should take six months.
