The access ramp on southbound Route 13 near the Centre at Salisbury will reopen on Monday.

It’s been closed since July forcing travelers to detour east of Naylor Mill Road exit in order to travel south on Route 13.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the closure was required to rehabilitate the bridge on the eastbound side of the bypass that crosses Route 13.

Meanwhile, there will be a temporary median crossover for work on the southbound bridges north of Route 50 near the Norfolk Southern Railroad overpass, Old Ocean City Road and Ocean Gateway.

This weekend the U.S. Route 13 South bound ramp to the Salisbury Bypass will be temporarily closed for around three months.

The Maryland State Highway Administration says that detour will add around five miles to travel time.

In addition, traffic signals will be temporarily put up at the ramps on Naylor Mill Road to ensure traffic flow and safety.

The construction is part of the 2 year, $24 million rehabilitation of 11 Salisbury Bypass bridges.

Progress on Airport Road in Milford has been delayed until a second job can be completed.

Construction has closed Route 113 as crews make repairs including improving drainage and a fresh coat of asphalt.

WBOC reports that the project will need the city to dig up nearly 1.5 miles of road between Route 113 and Route 15 at a cost of $2.4 million.

This and other construction has pushed back the start date for Airport Road requiring additional detours and traffic backups.
