How Salisbury traffic will be impacted by Saturday’s Sea Gull Century

by DrewLUD


Salisbury University has issued a traffic advisory for Saturday, Oct. 9, as some 4,000 cyclists are expected to participate in the 33rd Sea Gull Century bike ride.

Near the SU campus, heavy bicycle traffic is expected from 6-9 a.m., especially on Route 13, Milford Street and South Division Street. Cyclists will begin the ride in two heats, from 7-8:45 a.m.

Southbound traffic on South Division Street between College Avenue and Milford Street is open only to Century parking traffic during that time. Northbound traffic on South Division Street will be open only to Century traffic and those living in the restricted area. Overflow parking is available at Asbury United Methodist Church.

The 31st annual Sea Gull Century bicycle tour Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019, drew thousands to Wicomico County for a tour that has been called a “Best Bicycling in America” event and also was named among the top 10 century rides in the nation by Bicycling magazine.

Bateman Street will be closed to all vehicles throughout the day. Maryland State Police will be at its intersection with Route 13 from 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to assist with pedestrian safety. SU’s underpass will be used by cyclists going eastbound in the morning and westbound in the afternoon.

Traffic restrictions prohibiting southbound traffic from East College Avenue onto South Division Street should be expected throughout the afternoon. In addition, motorists may want to avoid Milford and Wayne streets.
