Crisfield Locals Want Signs for Tourists

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - Boat captains in Crisfield say not having a main dock confuses some tourists.  The main dock was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.  Now, tourists and some captains have to either meet on South 10th Street or at the Somerset County Dock.

Boat captain Mark Haynie said, "It's a lot easier and everybody knew where to go. There wasn't any confusion or anything like that.  They knew. That's been going on for years of being in the same place everyday and when all that got damaged by the storm that confused different ones about going to different areas."

Currently, boats dock at either of those locations.  The county's dock had a lot of traffic before the storm and now with extra vessels, there is even more. Some would like the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce to erect temporary signs for tourists until the dock is renovated.

Crisfield Chamber of Commerce Manager Valerie Howard said, "We're waiting on getting the approval for the money within the chamber, not like the state or anything, because we were hit pretty hard ourselves. But if we can get the approval for some money to get some signs, just temporary signs and put up on the medians to put up for the summer, it won't take that long to get made up."

Howard said the signs would cost anywhere from $200 to $300.
