A message from Tonya Lockwood:
Hello! My name is Tonya Lockwood and starting Tuesday, October 11th I will be replacing Mary Elizabeth Cooper as the Receptionist/Water & Sewer Billing Clerk at the Town Hall of Chesapeake City. I am a lifelong resident of Chesapeake City and I am excited to begin my new journey right here in my hometown. I've been married to my husband, Chuck, for 18 years, and he has coached numerous youth sports teams for our community. We both graduated from Bohemia Manor High School and began to create our life together in Chesapeake City. We have 2 children - an 18 year old son, Zack, and a 17 year old daughter, Zoë. Zack is a freshman at Towson University studying Music Education and plans to teach in Cecil County after graduation. Zoë is a senior at Bohemia Manor and plans to play softball and study Business with a focus in Accounting at Goldey Beacom College next year. My family takes great pride in calling Chesapeake City our home. We love attending all of the High School sporting events during the school year, and eating dinner at the Chesapeake City Little League Field during the ball season. The closeness of this community is something you don't get everywhere. Our hometown is by far the best! I can't wait to meet everyone! See you at Town Hall!
Public Can Access Live MD 213 Traffic Conditions on Web and Mobile Devices
The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) has installed two temporary traffic cameras along MD 213 (Augustine Herman Highway) near the Chesapeake City Bridge over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal in Cecil County. The temporary cameras provide 24/7 live stream of traffic conditions and can help commuters and emergency responders plan their routes during the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ bridge painting project.
Each day an average of 15,000 vehicles cross the Chesapeake City Bridge, which is owned and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. For more information on the Corps’ bridge painting project see http://www.nap.usace.army.mil/Media/News-Releases/Article/780921/army-corps-to-commence-repair-on-chesapeake-city-bridge/.
While SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands.
A complete listing of current SHA projects is included in e-Road Ready 2016, the online brochure. Maryland drivers can also know before they go by calling 511 or visiting www.md511.org for live traffic updates, including construction delays and lane closures.
Our very own Valerie Walls, CC Town Treasurer, represented Chesapeake City at the Maryland Municipal League Convention held in Ocean City in June 2016. Here she is carrying the flag at the Opening Ceremonies.
