Nanticoke Road Closure in Wicomico County

SALISBURY, Md. - It wasn't more than two years ago when a part of Nanticoke road was destroyed due to a damaged drain pipe. 

Now, it is happening again. 

As thousands of gallons of water are being relocated from one side of the Rockawalkin Creek to the other - the road remains closed for a significant period of time. 

Tropical Storm Michael dropped seven inches of rain in just a few hours and roadways suffered like Nanticoke road. 

The State Highway Administration said that a group of trees broke free from the creek which then clogged the dam. This caused the water elevation to rise which flooded the road and ultimately crumbled the asphalt to pieces. 

Right down the street from the dam is Country Side Market. 

Owner, Gary Foxwell said the first time the road was closed for a long period of time he lost 40% of his business and now he is afraid of that happening again. 

"I know how it will affect me and as you can see we should be busier than this," Foxwell said. "A lot of my business in the morning are people on their way to work or on the way to school." 

Ken Shrone lives off Nanticoke road. He said this case of deja vu is frustrating. 

"This is absolutely ridiculous," Shrone said. "I mean it takes all of the Nanticoke Road traffic and runs it through the communities where we have kids, bicycles, and everything." 

Dawn Pusey is a regular at Country Side Market. She stops by the deli for lunch everyday but now that may change. 

"It does make a big inconvenience and sometimes you forget and so when you're on a time frame, it really makes it difficult." 

As for Foxwell - he said if it wasn't for his regulars he would be in a lot more trouble.
