Road Paving Begins on Beaglin Park Drive in Salisbury

Posted: Jul 10, 2017 1:31 PM Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Road paving work began Monday morning on two stretches of Beaglin Park Drive in Salisbury. The work will fix many of the potholes that line the road. 

The city rated Beaglin Park Drive as one of the streets in most need of repairs. A private contractor was hired to complete the work. 

The road paving began this morning at 7 a.m., and the city said construction will affect the flow of traffic in two locations on Beaglin Park Drive. 

Traffic delays occurred shortly after work began, adding another headache to an already hectic morning for some drivers. 

"This road is a very busy road already. I just got stuck. I actually had to cross through the parking lot just to get here to the store because it was so backed up," said Ted Ramsey of Salisbury.

Officials said the areas from Hannibal Street to South Schumaker Drive, and from Snow Hill Road to College lane will experience delays during the work period.

Drivers should expect periodic delays in these areas between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. until the work wraps on Friday.

Some drivers said the traffic delays are a small price to pay in order to finally solve the issue of riding over potholes along the road.

"I'm always trying to swerve the potholes every time I go up and down the road, so yeah, I really think they should fix the potholes, because it's very dangerous for people," said Kristen Fitzgerald of Princess Anne.

Others said the necessary work shouldn't be completed during the hectic hours of the morning.

"I think it's an inconvenience for everyone that's trying to get to work early in the morning to have the construction out early in the morning. It should be done at a different time," said Luz Liciaga of Salisbury.

The city said it regrets any inconveniences the road work may cause, but said the work will allow for smoother riding down the road.
