    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
