New Sidewalk Opens as Students Head Back to School in Wicomico County

Posted:
SALISBURY, Md.- As students in Wicomico County head back to school, some people who walk to school will be able to use new sidewalks to increase their safety. A new sidewalk connects James M. Bennett High School to the existing sidewalk on Beaglin Park Drive, past the Snow Hill Road intersection.

Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt and the Department of Public Works held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new sidewalk Monday.

"We just made walking to school safer for our youth. Thank you to all who played such an important part in making this happen," said Pollitt.

The sidewalk project was part of the Safe Routes to School grant, funded by the Federal Highway Administration through the State of Maryland Highway Administration. The half-mile sidewalk project cost approximately $200,000.

The section of College Avenue from the end of the Bennett High School project to the intersection of Snow Hill Road was also repaved.
