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."
