SALISBURY, Md. – The City of Salisbury has announced it will permanently remove the signal system at the intersection of South Boulevard and Camden Avenue.

Officials say the signal is no longer needed, as traffic patterns have shifted since its original installation. It will be replaced by a two-way stop, with stop signs on South Boulevard. Traffic on Camden Avenue will not stop.

The work will take place in three stages:

  • The signal will be placed on four-way flashing red beginning Thursday, March 16th at 7 a.m and will remain that way for approximately 90 days
  • Stop signs will be placed on the two South Blvd approaches and turn lanes will be added over the next two weeks in preparation for signal removal, weather dependent
  • The signal will be removed around Thursday, June 8th, at 7 a.m., weather dependent

Drivers should expect shifts in traffic pattern during these work periods, however, drive time and user experience is expected to be improved. Residents in the immediate area will maintain access to their homes at all times.
