Public Meeting Tonight To Discuss US13 Bridges In Pocomoke

POCOMOKE CITY — The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will host an informational public meeting to update those who live and work in the area on the US 13 Bridges over the Pocomoke River near the Worcester/Somerset County line.

The meeting will be held tonight, June 20, from 6-7:30 p.m, in the cafeteria of Pocomoke Middle School, located at 800 Eighth Street in Pocomoke City.

As engineers finalize design for the project, the project team is seeking public feedback and also providing information on traffic management during construction.

This fall crews will begin construction to upgrade the bridge decks on both US 13 bridges in Pocomoke City. Located at the Somerset/Worcester county line, the two bridge decks will be reconstructed. The northbound bridge deck will be replaced, and the southbound bridge deck will be resurfaced. Work will require lane closures and traffic shifts during the two-year project.

Project information is available at under the “SHA Projects Page.” Click on the Wicomico County link.

Customers may also contact Mr. Jason Pollock, Project Manager, SHA Office of Structures at 410-545-8318 or toll-free 1-888-375-1084.

It took 410 days to build the Empire State Building, from start of excavation to completion. Why in hell does it take the State of Maryland 2 years to resurface two short bridges?

The state of engineering has advanced, not declined in the intervening 85 years. Oh, I forgot.....Maryland state projects are required to use union workers.
