CE­CIL COUNTY — Ma­jor roads in North East and Elk­ton are get­ting at­ten­tion from the Mary­land State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Two miles of Route 272 in North East be­tween Hances Point and Ir­ish­town Road and De­lancy Road in Elk­ton be­tween Red Hill Road and Dan­ford Drive will be repaved. SHA of­fi­cials say, weather per­mit­ting, both roads would be ground down, then a new coat of as­phalt would be ap­plied.

Work on De­lancy Road is sched­uled for the week of Aug. 22 with the Route 272 pro­ject the fol­low­ing week. Ac­cord­ing to SHA sta­tis­tics, the av­er­age daily vol­ume on 272 is 7,000 ve­hi­cles. De­lancy Road car­ries 8,000 daily.

These are two of five SHA projects in a $3.8 mil­lion pro­ject. Other roads are in Kent and Queen Anne’s coun­ties.
