Delay in Bateman/Onley Project Expected in Salisbury

Jun 13, 2012

There could be a snag in the construction set for next month at the Bateman Street/Onley Road intersection in Salisbury.

Mayor Jim Ireton presented the city council with a resolution that would make Bateman Street one-way and allow traffic to move in a westward direction from South Division Street to Wayne Street.

But the Salisbury Daily Times reports that the resolution will have to be turned into an ordinance which requires two votes and a public hearing.

A resolution only calls for one vote.

The construction project would also place pedestrian crosswalks and a traffic signal at the Onley Road and south division Street.
