Three Weeks After Sandy, Wicomico's Upper Ferry Reopens

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt on Tuesday announced that the Upper Ferry on the county's west side has been reopened.

Hurricane Sandy flooded the ferry house and damaged electronic equipment that required replacement. This resulted in the ferry being closed until necessary repairs could be made.

"The contractor was notified immediately after a damage assessment of the ferries following Hurricane Sandy," Pollitt said. "Employees from our Department of Public Works met with the serviceman at the ferry to diagnose the problems and determine the necessary repairs. We realize the importance of the Upper Ferry to the community and have been working as quickly as possible to restore the service."

Ferry Information Hotline: (410) 543-2765
Hours of Operation: 7 a.m.-5:30 pm, 7 days/week

    Gov. Martin O'Malley has said he may issue an executive order creating a pilot program for reforms to criminal bail procedures. It would be the next chapter in Maryland's efforts to comply with a Court of Appeals ruling that defendants have a right to legal counsel at every bail hearing. Legislators failed to agree on a solution this past session.
