Wicomico Traffic Detours Planned During Morris Mill Dam Rehab

SALISBURY – County officials this week outlined plans to reroute traffic from a portion of South Division Street later this year to rehabilitate the Morris Mill Dam in Fruitland.

At a public meeting Wednesday, Dallas Baker, public works director for Wicomico County, told residents traffic will be detoured to Route 13 using Cedar Lane in Fruitland and both Milford Street and College Avenue in Salisbury while construction takes place at the Morris Mill Dam.

The project will cost an estimated $1.4 million and take nine to 12 months to complete.

Baker said construction crews will be replacing metal pipes with two six-foot concrete pipes, clearing downstream vegetation, repaving the road and installing a new outfall structure, which has a gate that can be used to lower the water level.
