This phase of the overall Central Corridor Project includes the reconstruction of 6th Avenue from 13th Street to 19th Street and includes the installation of a roundabout at the intersection of 6th Avenue and 15th Street.
This phase continues the implementation of a long term traffic management plan for Marion’s core, which is the balancing of traffic between 6th and 7th Avenues and creating a more pedestrian-friendly atmosphere in Uptown Marion. The Central Corridor Master Plan was adopted by City Council in 2009.

This does not include property acquisitions or building demolitions. It is funded through general obligation bonds. Individual property owners will not be assessed.
