Work is progressing faster than originally expected and the Old Marion Road project is likely to wrap up within the next few weeks. We wanted to update you with some information about what to anticipate.

Starting Monday, August 31, the asphalt operations will begin on Old Marion Road between Regent Street and C Avenue. Old Marion Road will remain open to business access and property owner access only, and all other traffic will be required to detour via Collins Road to Council Street (westbound traffic) or via Golf Street to Council Street (eastbound traffic). This detour has already been in place for several weeks. The intersection at F Avenue remains open.

Weather permitting, work is expected to be complete by the end of the day, Friday, September 4, and the roadway re-opened to traffic. The remaining work will wrap up in the following weeks with sidewalk work and restoration of the parkway.

Information for Property Owners
  • Flaggers will be stationed at each end of the project, as well as at E Avenue and F Avenue, to help local residents access their homes and businesses.
  • Crews will work to keep your driveway open as much as possible, but short closures may be necessary when work is taking place directly in front of your home. 
  • After the asphalt crews go by your driveway, please allow 10-15 minutes before driving on it.
  • Place your garbage and recycling bins out in their normal location on your normal collection day. The contractor is responsible for making them accessible to our Solid Waste drivers, and for returning the bins to your property.
