MARYLAND.- The Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration is investing $12 million to repair and resurface roads in Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester counties. Weather permitting, all work should be complete by the end of the year.

During this year-long construction motorists should expect to see single lane closures.

“As crews are out repaving roads and creating a smooth ride for drivers, we ask everyone to slow down in work zones and pay extra attention,” said SHA District 1 Engineer Jay Meredith. 

The roads to be resurfaced are:

Dorchester County ($4.52 million)

  • Box Iron Road (MD 358A) – Entire section of roadway - one-quarter-mile;

  • MD 363 between US 13 (Ocean Highway) and Mansion Street - one-quarter mile; and
  • Northbound US 13 at MD 362 (Mt. Vernon Road) turns lanes only.

Wicomico County ($3.4 million)

  • Eastbound US 50 (Ocean Gateway) between Walston Switch Road and West of White Richardson Road – 6 miles;
  • MD 349 (Nanticoke Road) between Hickman Lane and Cedar Hill Parkway - 4 miles;
  • MD 12 (Snow Hill Road) between Airport Road and Nutters Cross Road - one mile; and

    Empty Crab Houses Look to Fall Season, Still With No Crab Pickers

    It's slim pickings for at least three of Dorchester County's crab houses. Since the start of crab season in April, the crab houses have sat empty without their Mexican crab pickers. It started when the U.S. Department of Homeland Security released H2-B worker visas through a lottery system, leaving out many businesses in dire need of seasonal help.
