Prince Frederick, MD – The Calvert County Department of Public Works will begin a project to help control flooding along 5th Street in North Beach in the coming weeks. The stormwater drainage improvement project will be completed in two phases, with the first phase beginning in mid-November.

County crews will improve the existing ditch line along the eastbound side of 5th Street between Milwaukee and Greenwood avenues. When completed, the grassed swale along the road will be re-established to provide positive drainage and address standing water and flooding issues. The work is expected to take several months.

For more information about the 5th Street drainage project, contact Engineering Division Chief Danielle Conrow at 410-535-2204, or by email at
