Road Work Causes Congestion in Ocean View and Princess Anne
A major road widening project for Route 26 in Ocean View saw some congestion this week at the coroner of Atlantic Avenue and Central Avenue.
Construction crews had limited the roadway to just one lane as they began relocating a pipeline.
It the first phase is expected to take up to six weeks and is part of a larger effort that will take three years to finish and will widen more than four miles of Route 26.
WBOC reports that the engineering firm says there will be no lane closures during the tourist season running from May 15th through September 30th.
In Princess Anne the State Highway Administration will begin resurfacing a 1.6 mile stretch of Route 657 today.
The $260-thosuand project along Somerset Avenue is expected to be finished by April weather permitting.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports the work will begin at the southern limit of Route 675 where the road meets Route 13 and continues northward to Broad Street.
Single lane closures are slated for Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m.
