Hurlock Preparing for Main Street Improvements

Posted: Updated:

HURLOCK, Md.-  It has been a busy few months in Hurlock.  First the new police station was finished, then the new and long overdue water mains were put in, and now main street is getting a facelift.  The latter two projects are intertwined, and those water main repairs were much needed.

"A lot of us were having trouble getting water out and it was loosing pressure and everything.  What they are doing is great, they fixed the water lines, and now they are redoing the blacktop and the sidewalks, it's going to be a great deal," said Patsy Era at Mom and Pop's Restaurant.

Work on the water mains has left a lot of steel plates and asphalt patches in the roadway.  But people don't see this as an inconvenience, they see it as a relief that they are finally getting a new water main.

"They are fixing the streets and it's going to be a better travel through and you're not going to tear your tires up and your cars.  I think it's great," said Era.

South Main Street will be resurfaced through town, with new sidewalks that will have bump outs near utility poles for compliance with the latest Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.  The state is funding the $4 million project.  Some are very thankful for the improvements.

"The economy is struggling, we're struggling, and all across the nation, I'm confident that there are other towns that are struggling.  Without these upgrades, these towns are doomed to failure," said John Nason of Hurlock.

"Hurlock needs a lot of improvement, and putting in new sidewalks and pavement and water lines is going to be very helpful," said Lexi Robbins

Ensuring businesses downtown and homes throughout town have clean streets and plenty of water.
