Princess Anne officials this week agreed to formally ask for a $25-thousand state grant for a water-and-sewer line study that is required for sidewalks and a roundabout on the northern edge of the town.
The proposed round-about would be located at the intersection of UMES Boulevard at Somerset Avenue.
The walkways would be extended from that intersection to Mount Vernon Road.
The project is expected to require the relocation of water and sewer lines.
The grant would relieve the property owners in the affected area from having to pay the engineering study costs.
Currently, the Somerset County Sanitary District that oversees water and sewer lines in Princess Anne does not have the money for the study that would also explore needed right-of-ways, required land purchases and construction costs.
