Marion road construction to begin on South Carbon Street

Posted: Updated:

MARION -- The City of Marion will begin a new road project that may cause some people to seek detours.

Construction crews will repave part of South Carbon Street from Main Street to Wildcat Drive.

Work on the mile-long stretch of road will begin at Wildcat Drive and work its way north.

Street Superintendent Doug Phillips said northbound lanes will close, and southbound lanes will stay open to help with congestion.

"When we get the first lane done northbound, and we turn around and go back south ... the whole road will be closed at this intersection for a little while till the asphalt sets up," he said.

Work will begin Tuesday morning at 7:00.

Phillips hopes to have the work done by Thursday.
