Public Open House set for 35th Street and 7th Avenue Intersection Improvements
The City of Marion will hold an open house from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27 at Marion City Hall with a presentation scheduled for 6 p.m. regarding improvements to the 35th Street and 7th Avenue intersection in Marion. Engineering staff and consultants will provide an overview of the project and the proposed construction schedule for the project.
The project includes the installation of new traffic signals along with the extension of left turn lanes from 7th Avenue onto 35th Street, the addition of a right turn lane on to northbound 35th Street, installation of a raised median on 35th Street, and the extension of Linden Drive to 7th Avenue. These improvements will improve the traffic movement and flow at this intersection.
The $825,000 project is funded through road use tax, general obligation bonds, and a $140,000 grant from the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Traffic Safety Improvement Program.
