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 413 (Crisfield Highway) between Tulls Corner Road and South of Tawes Campus Drive - 4 miles;
  • MD 363 (Deal Island Road) between Earl Webster Road and Messick Road - one mile;
  • MD 363 between Benton Circle and Osburn Webster Road – 2 miles;
  • 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
  • MD 346 (Old Ocean City Road) between Walston Switch Road and Rounds Road – 3 miles.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
