Finally A Traffic Light Coming To 60 Foot Road

Good news with the placement of a traffic signal at Sixty Foot Road and Rt 50! Thanks to the Pittsville and Wicomico Eastside community for making this a safety priority, and thanks to Governor Hogan and the State Highway Administration for your responsiveness and support. 
Lives will be saved!

It is a shame it's going to take about a yr. How many more very bad accidents or deaths before 1 yr is up. I live on Old Ocean City Rd between Friendship Rd and Sixty Ft Rd. If I am outside the crashes at night sound as if they are in my back yard:( We had 1 last week that sounded like a bomb went off!.
Thanks to Governor Hogan and the town residents of Pittsville and Willards This will be a wonderful light when it is done. I hope the people pay attention to it. They never seem to drive in the "Mandatory Headlight Use Area" with the lights on!!! We have bumps in the road just before Sixty Ft headed East bound... They have never helped either.

Can't fix stupidity.

I don't see this as a fix. the only way to stop accidents there is take out the intersection.

That intersection does not need a light... it will only back up traffic. People need to be more attentive and not in such a rush to cross over. The view is not blocked, just drivers in to much a hurry.

I travel from Mardela to Ocean City everyday during work week. I cross over the highway to go to JT's or the Dash In every morning. The highway in both directions is completely open with mo obstructions so there is no other reason for the accidents other then stupidity and lack of patience. Adding a light there or at Friendship Rd. will make it worse because the idiots flying up 50 to get back to their city homes wont be paying attention and end up jamming on brakes at last moment or just plain run through it.
