Snow Hill drawbridge to close

SNOW HILL – This weekend the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will close a section of Route 12, Snow Hill Road.  Starting at 8 p.m. Friday May 20, traffic will be directed to nearby routes and the bridge will remain closed through noon Sunday, May 22. This closure will allow crews to paint the ends of the MD 12 drawbridge over Pocomoke River.
Motorists headed southbound will turn left on Route 354, right on Porters Crossing Road and right on Route 113 South. Northbound traffic will use Route 113 Business South to Route 113 North, turn left on Porters Crossing Road, then left on Route 354 to Route 12 North.
If needed, SHA may continue overnight closures from Sunday, May 22 through Friday, May 27 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each day. Motorists would follow the same detour during the overnight closures. During the day, Route 12 will remain open to traffic and flagpersons will guide motorists through the work zone. SHA expects this bridge painting project to be complete no later than Friday, May 27, weather permitting.
