The Leonard Mill Pond Collaborative and the MD State Highway Administration

The Leonard Mill Pond Collaborative and the MD State Highway Administration will be at the Delmar Elementary School tonight between 5:30 to 7 PM to discuss the truck weigh station expansion plans.

Some residents are concerned that an expansion of the weigh station would bring undesirable effects (noise, traffic, lower property values, cutting of woodland and increase run off to the pond)

The expansion has been discussed since 1988.  The current station was built in 1952.  The expansion plans would make a weigh station 5 to 6 times larger than present and require moving the scales a little further north on RT13.
