Wicomico County Wrapping up Scheduled Paving Projects

Posted: Updated:
SALISBURY, Md.- Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt and the Department of Public Works – Roads Division have announced that they will wrap up their spring/summer hotmix/asphalt paving program by the end of September.

Approximately 24 miles of county roads will be paved at the end of this schedule.

“Despite the loss of roughly 96 percent of our state funding for roads programs, we have been able, by carefully managing our financial resources, to provide a robust schedule of roads maintenance projects this year," Pollitt said.

Superintendent of Roads Lee Outen said, “We are grateful that we have been appropriated funding that will help preserve and begin addressing the backlog of resurfacing that we face. Roads play an essential role in our day to day activities, so we must ensure that they are kept in a safe condition.”

The remaining schedule for Hotmix/Asphalt Paving Program is as follows:

Week of Sept. 2

o Elk Creek Drive
o Nutters Cross Road
o Zion Church Road: Zion Road intersection to south of Morris Leonard Rd
o Walston Switch Road: Rt 346 to Archie Dennis Road and Rt 50 to beyond Beaver Run Drive.

The county's bituminous surface treatment or tar and chip project also remains on schedule with the contractors covering as much as 3 miles per day.
