Paving work on the south side of Marion Street between 1st Ave and 5th Ave has been completed and SDOT is ready to begin work on the north side of the street next. We will reduce the length of time residents, businesses, vehicular and pedestrian traffic are disrupted on the north side of Marion Street, by increasing the resources on the project from September 14 through September 28. This means limited work will occur between September 1 and September 14. Originally, this portion of the paving base repair, utility adjustments, grinding, and overlay work was going to be continuous from August 27 through September 28. We are now condensing that work to happen within a two week period from September 14 through September 28.
Between now and then, all lanes will be opened fully to traffic with the exception of minor interruptions. We know that once the contractor removes the top surface of the pavement, the ride can be a bit bumpier and noisier — this new schedule reduces the amount of time vehicles have to drive on the street after the upper layer of asphalt has been ground off.
