CAMBRIDGE, Md.- A new Maryland State Highway Administration project is set to break ground on Oct. 14 in Cambridge.

The $660,000 project was set to start on Wednesday, but rains delayed the project.  Sidewalks between the Malkus bridge on Route 50, down to Crusader Road, are set to be replaced. Crosswalks at Cedar Street and Maryland Avenue will be improved as well.

Joshua Howell said those crosswalk improvements are important.  He was hit by a car in Annapolis in 2009.

"As far as crosswalks go, for sure, because Maryland state law says pedestrians have right of way, but not to many drivers respect that." said Howell.

He doesn't think the sidewalks need upgrading though.

"Sidewalks by the Walgreens look brand new, there's no need to go and replace those," he said.

Christian Taber of Cambridge says it seems like sometimes projects like this are done just for the sake of fixing things.

"From what I usually see, they just tear stuff up and then redo it like they are fixing it.  But usually it seems fine," said Taber.

A spokesperson for the SHA said the construction company is eager to get started as soon as the weather clears.  They expect to be completed by mid-December.
