FEDERALSBURG, Md. - Finishing touches were made Monday to the bridge over the Marshyhope Creek in Federalsburg. The bridge, which cost $2.3 million to renovate, opened 5 p.m. Monday for the first time since May.

Michael White of Sharpton said that with tractor-trailers being detoured, small towns have dealt with more traffic than usual while the bridge was under construction.

"It's a lot of truck traffic for small towns, before they would get parked, Federalsburg would see most of it but it's all over," said White.

Not only frustrating for small towns, but for truck drivers too.

"Your truckers have to take all these detours and there are no truckers around through town because of the bridges in town and it's hard on them finding there way around," White said.

Many area residents are happy about the bridge being reopened again. Chip Hick so Federalsburg said, "A lot of people around here will be for the simple fact that you have the industrial factory up here and you got trucks cutting through town. They have to take the back way and I work right down the street here and dump trucks have to go all different ways and directions. It's a main artery to this town."
