Delayed Midway Road bridge work offers businesses best worst-case scenario

-A A +A
By Brian Slattery

Two delays of a bridge replacement on Midway Road saved Greenlands Farm Store’s spring and summer seasons, but the owners still dread being cut off from their customers.

The bridge being replaced crosses River Swamp and Hog Branch on Midway Road about four miles south of Old Ocean Highway.

Heather Burkert and her husband, Henry, own Greenlands Farm Store, which is on Midway Road about 1.5 miles south of Old Ocean Highway.

The project, which will close the road for up to five months, was first planned to begin in March, then was delayed until August.
