A Brief History

Salisbury has had a full, half-circle, eastern bypass (US 13) since 1981. In 2002, the bypass was extended westward as a 3/4 loop. Now US 50 bypasses the town on the north. Old alignments of US 13 and US 50 through the center of Salisbury are now business routes. Business US 50 is one of only two routes signed in Maryland with green and white colors rather than the standard black-on-white for US and state highways. (Business US 1 in Bel Air was the first green route in the state.)
