Governor Focuses on Infrastructure During Shore Swing

Governor Hogan visited several project sites, and spoke about infrastructure issues during his current visit through Eastern Shore counties.

From coverage in the Washington Post:

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) heard mostly thank-yous Thursday as he crisscrossed the Republican-friendly Eastern Shore, announcing new road and bridge projects, drawing drastically different responses than he has received from critics in Baltimore and the Washington suburbs.

. . .

On Thursday, the governor highlighted projects that might have scored low with the state’s rating system, but nonetheless make a difference for Eastern Shore businesses and residents.

At one stop, Hogan announced $26 million to renovate a series of bridges on U.S. 13 in Wicomico and Somerset counties. Currently, heavy trucks can’t use the eastern half of one span in Wicomico, often forcing them to use alternative routes that go through Delaware.
