SALISBURY, Md.- Plans to bring a pedestrian and bike trail to Wicomico County have been scrapped. 

WBOC earlier this week reported about a proposal to turn unused railroad tracks between Salisbury and Mardela Springs into that trail. 

Currently those tracks, which run right through the town of Hebron, are covered in overgrown weeds and riddled with broken ties and rusty railroad spikes. A number of people WBOC spoke with voiced concerns about the proposed trail's close proximity to several homes.They were also concerned about who would monitor activity on the trails. 

The public was invited to give input at Tuesday's Wicomico County Council meeting, where County Executive Bob Culver addressed those concerns. Culver took action and decided to remove the proposal from the county's "priority letter" to the Maryland Department of Transportation, which lists all the projects seeking state assistance in Wicomico County.
