Project Summary:

This project will reconstruct Marion Road from a gravel rural section road to an urban concrete pavement section with turning lanes from Foundation Court to 259th Street.  259th Street will also be reconstructed as an asphalt-surfaced street from Marion Road to just east of the railroad tracks.  Work on the project will also include a storm drainage system, sanitary sewer, and water main.  These improvements are necessary to accommodate anticipated traffic increases due to recent and future development at Foundation Park.
