New traffic signal could be seen in Ocean City

OCEAN CITY, Md.– Ocean City officials are pushing for a new traffic signal to be installed on Third Street and Philadelphia Avenue.

47ABC was told the town of Ocean City is asking the State Highway Administration to make this happen.

They said the traffic light is needed because of the high volume of traffic and pedestrians there.

On top of that, they said it’s needed because a new public works building, which houses boardwalk trams, will create even more congestion in that area.

“With the addition of the team facility and the expectation that the trams will be traversing in that area, it’s certainly is worth looking into to determine if a light there is necessary and we think it is,” Jessica Waters, OC Communications Manager, said.

Right now, the discussion about putting a new traffic signal up is in its preliminary stages.

47ABC was told that the town wants to have a traffic signal up by the summer, but if it’s not practical they will think of other options.
