SALISBURY, MD. -- Damaged roads in Salisbury are set to be repaved over the next four years but locals said the repairs are not happening fast enough.

Salisbury's latest Capital Improvement Plan allocates $4.1 million to street reconstruction between fiscal years 2016 and 2020.

Some of the first streets that will be repaired include Naylor St., Hampshire Rd., and Circle Ave.

But Paul Riter, a resident on Hanover St. near Salisbury University, will not see any repairs performed on his street until FY 2018. Riter said repairs need to happen now.

"Down Pinehurst there's a pothole right in the middle of the street and it just keeps getting worse and worse," said Riter.

Riter said many of the roads in his neighborhood are severely damaged but understands these types of projects take time.

"We need more repairs when they get the money so I think they're doing the best they can," he said.

But Alan Friend who works on Northwood Dr. said he often has to swerve to avoid the potholes and ruts that fill the roadway.

"It's hard. If you're going 35 miles per hour it makes you feel like you're hitting a ditch or something," said Friend.
