Paving Project Starting Wednesday Near Pittsville

Nov 12, 2013 -- 9:13am

Roads outside of Pittsville will be paved starting tomorrow through the remainder of the fall.

Contractor George & Lynch will be resurfacing about 11.5 miles of roads for the Wicomico County Department of Public Works’ Roads Division. The work will start on Sixty Foot Road from Route 50 to the Pittsville town line. Bridge approaches will be paved on Morris, Purnell Crossing, Three Bridges, Sheppards Crossing, Bethel and Richardson Roads. Paving will also be done on Morris Leonard, Dagsboro, Rum Ridge and Naylor Mill Roads.

Public Works Director Lee Beauchamp says the county’s paving funds will be used to fix some of the most deteriorated roads. The last major paving project was before the economic downturn. The Wicomico County Council set aside an additional $1 million for road repairs.
