Work is set to begin on the Morris Mill Dam Rehabilitation project starting the week after Labor Day, Sept. 4th- 7th.. At that time South Division Street in Fruitland will be closed between Morris Mill Road and Emily Drive. A detour route using US 13 Business will be established.
Work is expected to last approximately one year during which time the outfall structure and cross road piping will be replaced. Larger vegetation along the embankments will be removed and the downstream slope will be armored to protect against a washout.
The work is being done in compliance with a Maryland Department of the Environment mandate to bring the dam up to current standards.
Any questions related to the project should be directed to Wicomico County Public Works - Roads Division at 410-548-4872.
