Drivers Want Changes at Dangerous Intersection

Posted:

SNOW HILL, Md. - One Worcester County intersection could be getting safety upgrades; a measure drivers have been pushing for quite some time. 

Maryland State Highway Administration engineers will hold a public meeting Wednesday night to unveil plan to make the intersection at Route 113 and Route 12 in Snow Hill safer. The designs call for the installation of J-turns to make U-turns safer and reduce the number of crashes.

Many local drivers can recall close encounters they had while driving through that intersection.  Others can tell the story of how they did not escape it.

"I was hit at that intersection by a woman who was not looking and crossed the intersection as I was coming north and I rolled my vehicle five times at 60 miles an hour," said Daniel Westerlund of Snow Hill.

It was less than two weeks ago that an accident involving a flat-bed truck and a pickup truck killed one man.  Many drivers would like to see a stop light installed rather than the flashing caution lights that are currently hanging over the intersection. 

The meeting will be held in the Worcester County Government Building in Snow Hill Wednesday night.  The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
