SALISBURY, Md.- A median fence will be coming to a section of Business Route 50 in Salisbury this July.

The Maryland State Highway Administration will be starting the median safety project in just a couple of weeks.

A median or fence will be placed between the lanes of Route 50 starting at Wicomico Middle School and ending on East Main Street.

The SHA said people are coming down Route 50 way too fast and the pedestrian safety on this section of the highway could definitely use some improvement.

"A lot of times people aren't even mindful or cognizant that there is a middle school right here, children do cross here and people just aren't necessarily aware," said Tanesah Hankerson of State Highway.

Wicomico Middle School Principal Kelley Morris-Springston said this addition is something she thinks will hopefully prevent students from jaywalking.

"It will be beneficial for them to be able to go up to the light and cross at the crosswalk," said Morris-Springston.

The fence will be a five-foot barrier and will take about three months to complete.
