Morgan Avenue in Marion Closed for Construction
MARION -- Morgan Avenue was closed Tuesday from Carbon Street to Atchison Avenue and it'll be shut down along that stretch again Wednesday.
Crews are reconstructing and widening the road. It comes as more drivers than usual rely on Morgan Avenue to bypass construction at the 13-57 interchange
Mayor Bob Butler says that's not an option right now.
"With the construction they'll have to revert back to using the state highway," said Butler
The multi-million dollar construction project will last several months.
Periodic road closures will continue during that time.
