TRANSPORTATION ASSETS ON LESMD
Major transportation assets within the LESMD Region include road, rail, air and water. Augmenting this range of assets is the physical intersection in Salisbury of US 50 (East-West) and US 13 (North-South), which helps serve as a catalyst to cohesive regional economic development.
The US 13 corridor includes the Delmarva Central Railroad (DCR) and a pathway for the southern extension of diversified energy resources such as natural gas into less developed areas of the Region.
The close proximity of the SBY Regional Airport to US 50 factors heavily in the continued development of the airport and its aviation oriented Technology Park, while the expansion and continued development of the Port of Salisbury and its barge traffic is dependent on the main highway corridors.
