"State Highway crews started installing 150 feet of rip rap along MD249 on St. George's Island this morning in response to the erosion and flooding issues that so many of you have brought to my attention over the last few years. The work is scheduled to be completed by Sunday, March 15th, weather permitting, and drivers can expect a single lane closure while the work is being done. Thank you to all the residents for your tireless efforts. I have sent countless emails, calls and texts, and along with your persistence, the efforts paid off." - Brian Crosby
