Bateman Street Groundbreaking Ceremony Today

It is finally going to come to pass.

At 11 am this morning the City of Salisbury will hold the groundbreaking ceremony for a change on Bateman Street.

Last week the City Council unanimously approved plans to make Bateman Street one-way for westbound traffic between South Division and Wayne streets.

Mayor Jim Ireton praised the work and generosity of Salisbury University as well as the Salisbury Public Works Department.

Salisbury University contributed $180-thousand to the $280-thousand cost of the initiative in partnership with the City of Salisbury.

Delay in Bateman/Onley Project Expected in Salisbury

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.
