Bridge Replacement on Maple Street Completed Ahead of Schedule
Maple Street south of Marion Road has been opened to traffic today.
On September 19, 2012, Maple Street approximately 900 feet west of Marion Road was closed to begin construction to replace a deteriorated bridge. The project was scheduled for completion on October 13, 2012. With proper planning and teamwork between Public Works, the contractor (Asphalt Surfacing Company), and the consulting engineer (Goldsmith Heck), construction was accelerated and Maple Street was opened one week early.
Public Works would like to thank the traveling public for their patience during this project.
