SU: Motorists Watch Out for Bicyclists Saturday

Posted:
 SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury University says heavy bicycle traffic is anticipated near the SU campus for the morning of Saturday, September 27 for the 26th Sea Gull Century Bike Ride.

The university says heavy bike traffic is expected from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., especially in the area of Route 13 along campus, Milford Street and South Division Street. SU says South Division Street between College Avenue and Milford Street will only be open to Sea Gull Century parking traffic during that time.

More than 6,000 cyclists are expected to participate, according to the university. SU says three routes will take riders through Wicomico, Somerset and Worcester counties: the traditional 100-mile Assateague century, 100-mile Snow Hill century and 64-mile Princess Anne metric.

Riders will pass directly through the towns of Princess Anne, Pocomoke City, Snow Hill and Berlin, according to the university. They will congregate at rest and water stops including Washington High School, Nassawango Golf Course, Cypress Park, Byrd Park, Whiton Crossing, Assateague Island State Park and the Powellville VFW.

SU says Bateman Street will be closed to all vehicles throughout the day. Traffic restrictions prohibiting southbound traffic from East College Avenue on South Division Street should also be expected throughout the afternoon. In addition, the university says motorists may want to avoid Milford and Wayne streets, and the round-about in Fruitland.

The university says Maryland State Police and local police will control the intersection of Route 12/Snow Hill Road at Route 354/Nassawango Road, and the intersections of Route 113 at Germantown Road and Route 376. Bicycle traffic is also expected on Mount Hermon Road in the afternoon.

SU says Century coordinators encourage cyclists and motorists to exercise extra caution during this time. The university says post-ride festivities are near SU's Perdue and Henson halls. Bicycle traffic will be heavy near campus from 3-6 p.m. The university says all riders should be off the roads by dark.
