SNOW HILL, Md.- The Maryland State Highway Administration announced Thursday that it will be holding a public meeting next week to discuss proposals to improve two intersections on US 113 in Snow Hill.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 19, in the Worcester County Commissioners' board room on the first floor of the Worcester Government Building at North Washington Street.

SHA engineers said they will provide an overview of a new intersection improvement concept that is currently being designed for the US 113/MD 365 (Public Landing Road) and US 113/MD 12 (Snow Hill Road) intersections. The design of the projects is expected to be complete by spring 2013, according to the SHA. While both projects are funded through the design phase, the SHA said additional funding will be needed for construction.

SHA engineers will present project descriptions of the planned improvements for both intersections. The SHA noted that a traffic study it conducted determined the construction of "J-turns," a right turn to a safe U-turn point, are a safe option to prevent crashes at both locations.

For more information about the projects or meeting, call the SHA District One office at (410) 677-4000 or toll-free at (800) 825-4742.
