SHA Begins Next Phase of Isabella St. Drainage Improvement


SALISBURY, Md.- The Maryland State Highway Administration said it will begin the next phase of drainage improvement work in Salisbury by detouring traffic and closing a one-block section of Isabella Street on Wednesday, April 10. Traffic on Isabella Street will be prohibited Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. between Mill Street and Park Avenue. The daytime only detour will remain in effect for one month, weather permitting.

The temporary road closure will allow the contractor to install both a new water main and new storm drain along this one-block section of Isabella Street. The SHA said access to residents and businesses on Isabella Street and access to Mill Street will use a detour that will direct motorists traveling westbound on Isabella Street to US 50 Business (East Salisbury Parkway) to Division Street and then return to Mill Street.  Motorists traveling eastbound on Isabella Street will take the same detour in the opposite direction.

The SHA will use detour signs, cones and barrels to guide motorists through the work zone.

This section of work is part of drainage improvements along streets in the Newtown Neighborhood and is scheduled to be completed by December 2013.  The second phase of the project includes installing new drainage pipes along both sides of US 13 Business north of London Avenue.  The entire project is scheduled for completion by fall 2014.

The SHA said it is working with the City of Salisbury to ensure minimal disruption of public utilities to property owners
