New funding to improve roadways in Salisbury
SALISBURY, Md. – In Salisbury, residents can expect to see more roadway construction in the near future thanks to additional state funding.
Maryland State Delegate Carl Anderton recently announced the restoration of Highway User Revenues on the shore, which consists of a variety of taxes and fees used to fund the state’s highway system and potential upgrades.
Anderton tells 47 ABC that local roads are typically maintained within their jurisdictions, and for the past 10 years the quality of those has diminished due to cuts in funding.
He adds lawmakers put up quite the fight in Annapolis for this funding and look forward to seeing the quality of life improve.
“I’m just very excited to see people back to work, fixing streets and sidewalks and just doing the things we can to ensure that everybody has the opportunity to enjoy the highest quality of life they desire. This goes a long way to doing that,” Del. Anderton said.
$1.8 million dollars will go towards local road upgrades in Salisbury for Fiscal year 2023.
