Kudos To State Highway For Road Cleanup


I wanted to put out a big kudos to all the people who were out clearing the roads after our recent snow storm. Honestly one of the best jobs I had seen. I traveled to Crisfield as well and the roads were fantastic. I don't think people really appreciate the work these guys and girls put into keeping our roads so awesome during these storms...

I agree, Route 50 and 13 were wonderful. These folks deserve a giant thank you!!!!

I'd like to thank the Choptank and Asplundh crews for restoring electric as quickly as they did. Those guys were out two days for up to 16 hours each. STRONG WORK!

The next day was fine, however as it was coming down and the evening on the snow was horrible. Maryland doesn't pre-treat which makes all of the difference in the world. Delaware brines the road and sands intersections, so it's a night and day difference as soon as you cross the state line.

Keep in mind there was a double fatal/multi-car accident around 4pm on Friday on Rt 50, and I'm sure that would have been avoided if SHA had done pre-treating.

It might have been avoided if people stayed off the roads when snow and ice have them covered!!!

Hey jt, some fool in a Civic Center truck today almost sideswiped my daughter and me over on Churchill ave over by the Elks lodge today. He was driving like a wild man. The truck had a number 13 on it and the only other thing I could see was a cigarette hanging from his mouth and a ball cap on his head. It's idiots like this that gives a lot of govt workers a bad name.

@11:11, Maryland is pre-treating the roads in Worcester county. My husband has a brine truck and has a contract with SHA. I think it they may have just started doing that this year.

Very good job, hope you all made some o/t who can't use some extra $ around Christmas.

I adopted a 1/2 mile long street in Salisbury and shoveled all of it clean before daylight.On my return trip I did everyone's sidewalks for free.

hey jt, we "county employees" have a stupid scavenger hunt this Friday at the civic center. We are supposed to be looking for the tables and chairs MKA sold out of the back door. We are also supposed to be looking for 50 lb bags of deer corn and empty mountain dew cans. I don't think I can take anymore if we have to find Mr Millers mirror. Taxpayers would have a fit if they saw this fiasco

jt, why the hell would a county dump truck be driving down Naylor mill road loaded with branches and his tailgate down? people were swerving to avoid the branches that were falling off. i'm surprised if someone wasn't seriously injured. When we caught up to this truck it had a number 11 on the side if that means anything. We just hope everyone is ok and by the way people stopped along the roadway and were throwing branches off to the side.
