Work was suspended temporarily in the immediate aftermath of the Iowa Derecho on August 10. Work is resuming as crews move forward on project completion. With watermain work complete at various intersections throughout the corridor, pavement replacement has begun. This work will continue for the next 1-2 weeks.
Street patching is complete west of F Avenue, and Old Marion Road, including the intersection at F Avenue, is now open for local traffic (residents accessing their homes, or those traveling to a business). All other eastbound traffic should detour via Golf Street to Council Street.
Old Marion Road remains closed between F Avenue and C Avenue. However, the intersection at E Avenue remains open. Crews are currently working on pavement replacement in this section. Westbound traffic should detour via Collins Road to Council Street.
You can expect to see a transition to temporary one-way traffic flow throughout the corridor the week of August 31. This traffic pattern will help to complete the final pavement work. We will send an additional update on access and detours when we have a firm date of this traffic change.
As always, we appreciate your patience. Please let us know if you have any questions.
