(SNOW HILL, Md.) - Tattered roads in one Worcester County town may soon be getting a makeover.
The roar of school buses echo throughout Snow Hill on any given day of the week but no street sees quite as much bus traffic as Coulbourne Lane.
Neighbors say the street is typically packed with dozens of buses twice, even three times a day, often wearing down the road.
"The conditions have been really good in the past but now the road is in disrepair," said Linda King, a longtime Coulbourne Lane resident. "It's really heavy when school lets out and early in the morning. That's the way it is because this is a heavily traveled road."
Pot holes and worn out patches of pavement littering the road has now gained attention from the county.
At a May 8 work session, the county commissioners awarded a grant to Snow Hill to cover a portion of the funds needed to repave a number of streets in town, including Coulbourne.
The town manager said several streets need work and the town will determine which of those roads will be repaved first. Some streets, including Bay Avenue, are already under construction.
"I'm very happy. I asked them when were they going to repave the whole road and they said, 'not yet but soon.' And now that time has come," said King.
The town originally requested $130,250 from the county to help with the repaving project.
